Adoption Now brings together the local authority adoption services for six areas in the North West of England – Blackburn with Darwen, Bolton, Bury, Rochdale, Tameside, Oldham working in partnership with two voluntary adoption agencies, Caritas Care and Adoption Matters.

As a new Regional Adoption Agency we are building on the good reputation and excellent work already being done to provide high quality adoption services for children and adults.

Our core purpose is to deliver the following:

  • High quality, child-centred, and efficient family finding service for children who have a plan for adoption.
  • Robust, responsive and sensitive adopter approval service.
  • A highly skilled and professional support services for adopters, adopted children, adopted adults and birth parents.

We welcome enquiries from these areas, as well as Greater Manchester and surrounding areas. We will consider enquiries from within the North West and wider if you are looking to adopt harder to place children.
