Adoption is one of the most rewarding and successful ways of caring for a child.

This website provides information for people who are interested in finding out more about adoption.


What is Adoption?

Adoption is a permanent, life-long commitment which offers children who are unable to live with their birth family the opportunity to grow up in a family that can give them love, care, stability and security.

It is a legal process which transfers all legal responsibility for a child to their new parent/s.

Adoption is life changing and can be challenging but it is also very rewarding. So consider making a difference to a child's life and get in touch with the Adoption team.
