There are children waiting to be adopted right now

It is easier than you think. Adopt South West is a partnership of councils and charities working together to make the adoption process quicker and simpler. We want to encourage people who have not considered adoption before to come forward.

At the moment we are prioritising our search for adopters for children aged 4 and over, sibling groups, children with additional needs, and children of black and minority ethnic heritage. These children can often find themselves waiting longer for their forever families than a baby or a toddler.

If you’re considering adopting a younger child, please enquire about our Fostering to Adopt initiative which protects these children from experiencing multiple moves within the care system. Discover if adoption is right for you.

What are you waiting for? Get in touch to find out more and help transform children's lives.
