Lambeth’s adoption team understand the needs of adopters and are here to help and support adopters throughout the whole adoption process and beyond.

Our team is made up of highly experienced professionals who will always offer a sensitive, promote and professional service.  As a service we endeavour to comply with First4Adoption Customer Care Standards.

Lambeth will support you all the way, including being clear and upfront with information about the process, details of what is entailed in Stage One and Stage Two of the assessment process and how we work to help find a child to be matched to you.  The support doesn’t stop there as we are here to support you and your family after a child has been placed with you from social events to parenting courses. Our social workers also help adoptive parents to learn how best to talk to their children about the past. We want both you and your children to feel secure in the knowledge that support is available when and if needed.
