If you would like to attend any of our adoption information sessions (online virtually), please complete our online form and we email you a link to EventBrite to book yourself onto an event, on a date that suits you.

You can also sign up to receive email alerts about future events for potential adopters.

Before starting your adoption journey, please attend one of our information events. They are a great way to find out more about adoption. You can talk to adoption social workers and families who’ve adopted, watch a presentation, find out more about the application process, and get your questions answered.

In her mid-40s, Zelda adopted three children after trying to start a family through IVF and attended an information in person (pre-COVID). All our Adopt South West information events are now being held online, the only difference is that you get to join from the comfort of your own home!

Our Business Support Team will explain how to join a virtual information session when you book.

For adoptive families, we provide events:

Step-parent adoption events:

Before making your application you must attend a step-parent adoption information session.

Step-parent adoption is a way in which you can become the legal parent of your partner’s child or children from a previous marriage or relationship.

Due to the current coronavirus (COVID-19) situation, we are now able to offer our step-parent information sessions virtually. Please contact the team who will book you onto the next available date.
