Many children waiting to be adopted:

  • are aged four or older
  • are in goups of two or more brothers or sisters
  • have disabilities or special needs.

We especially want to hear from people who could adopt children like these or who could foster to adopt.

We are now taking adopters from all regions, including Milton Keynes and those with children.

Our fundamental aim is to safeguard and promote a child's welfare throughout their childhood and beyond.

To meet this aim we are committed to finding adopters who can meet a child’s social, emotional, educational health and cultural needs and provide a loving, secure and nurturing environment.
