Following your first enquiry, you will be invited to an informal information session where we will talk to you about the adoption process and answer any questions you may have. You will also have an opportunity to meet other prospective adopters and hear from experienced adopters.
If you decide that you would like to go ahead, you’ll be asked to complete a registration of interest form and a social worker will meet with you (either online, virtually, or in way that works – depending on the coronavirus (COVID-19) current situation).
If your registration of interest is accepted we can move you onto the more formal two-stage assessment process which should take about 6 months to complete.
