We are a regional adoption agency bringing together the experience and skills of nine South London Boroughs – Richmond, Kingston, Sutton, Merton, Croydon, Wandsworth, Lewisham, Lambeth and Southwark.
We cover all areas of adoption including assessing adopters, family finding for our children, post adoption support. We host regular events for prospective adopters, annual family fun days, support groups for adopters and birth parents. We are a child-focused agency and our in-depth assessment process ensures that we approve the right adopters for our children.
We need adopters from all walks of life and backgrounds who have the space in their life provide a loving, nurturing and stable home for children who cannot live within their birth families. We are currently looking for adopters from our BME communities, those who can consider adopting sibling groups and those who feel able to accept greater uncertainties or more complex needs.
