Having your child adopted

If you are considering giving up your child for adoption, our social workers will be able to talk to you about your options. This is an important decision and you need to feel that you have all the right information before making it.

Call us on 03000 41 11 11 if you would like to talk about having your child adopted.

We can put you in touch with Connecting Adoptive Families Independent Service (CAFIS) who can give you counselling and advice.

The British Association for Adoption and Fostering (BAAF) have also produced a guide to having your child adopted which answers some of the main questions you might have about how the adoption will work and what you have to do.
