If you would like to attend any of our adoption information sessions (online virtually), please let us know you will be coming. Complete our online form, call 0345 155 1076 or email adoptsouthwest@devon.gov.uk and we will confirm the details with 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 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:

Step-parent adoption

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. Find out more.

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.
