Guide: The adoption process
We will answer your questions and provide written information about adoption. Come and meet us for a coffee at an informal information session, and talk to a social worker about your own circumstances, interests and wishes.
If you decide that you would like to go ahead, you’ll be asked to complete a Registration of Interest and formally submit it to us. If we think you are likely to be able to offer a home for the kinds of children needing adoption, then you will go through an approval and assessment process (see left-hand-side panels).
