Southwark is an inner city borough with one of the largest numbers of looked after children in the country. This means we are able to assess and match our adopters in-house giving them constant support and assistance from the beginning of the process to after the adoption order is made.

We are looking for families (single and couples) who are interested in adopting the children we have already looking for homes and those coming through our system. In the main these are children of Black African/Black Caribbean or mixed heritage, including those in sibling groups.

We would also like to hear from people interested in Fostering for Adoption of children from Black African/Black Caribbean or mixed heritage.

Our informal drop-in sessions are for those wishing to have an informal chat about any aspect of fostering or adoption.  Come along for a cup of coffee and a chat with one of our advisers on any of the days below.
