Contact us

We cover the regions and borders of Devon, Plymouth, Somerset and Torbay but we welcome calls and enquiries from anyone. If you're ready to begin your adoption journey or would just like some information, or support, please do get in touch with us today.


If you are thinking about adopting and would like to attend one of our information events it’s best to email us and we’ll send you a link to Eventbrite to choose an adoption event date that suits you.

If you attend an event, and we don’t hear back from you, we will delete your details after six weeks. Our privacy policy can be found online.



Call us on 0345 155 1076.

Our phone lines are open Monday to Friday 9:00 am to 1.00 pm.

If no one is there to answer your call, please leave a message and someone will get back to you the next working day.
