Talk to an adoption expert

Every working day we have a duty social available to speak to between 9am and 4.30pm. They will be able to talk you through the process, answer any questions you have and advise you on how to proceed.  You can call our main office directly or email us including your phone number to arrange a call back.

After you've spoken to our duty social worker we'll send you an information pack and talk about arranging a visit to your home to exchange more detailed information. The next stage after the home visit is to register your interest with Adoption Focus and begin the preparation process by attending one of our preparation groups.

Book into one of our information events

We hold regular information events in each of our regions. They're a great way to find out about adoption, the process and the support Adoption Focus will provide for you.

Our information events start with a brief presentation to give you some background about the adoption process. You then have the opportunity to have a confidential conversation with an adoption social worker to ask specific questions and talk about arranging a home visit as the next stage of the process. The next stage after the home visit is to register your interest with Adoption Focus and begin the preparation process by attending one of our preparation groups.
