Adoption Focus will help you to become the parents you want to be and will be with you every step of the way.

We believe that all children have the right to a loving and stable family life. We never forget that it's adoptive parents who provide this for children who've experienced a difficult start in life.

We encourage people from all ages and backgrounds to adopt with us.  Whether you are a couple, single, gay, straight, already have children or not, or if you have a disability, you have the potential to adopt. Contact us, we’d love to hear from you and will respond to your enquiry quickly and professionally.


We are adoption specialists

Adoption Focus specialises in adoption and our friendly and experienced team will be with you at every step of the process. Ofsted has rated our service as ‘Outstanding’ on each of the three occasions we have been inspected, most recently in 2018.

"Adopters feel well prepared to look after their children. This is because staff work collaboratively with them throughout their assessment and post approval. Adopters value the individual relationships that they have with staff and the agency. They feel they receive excellent support at all stages of the process."

Support before adoption

From your first call to Adoption Focus, our adoption social workers give you the time and professional support you need to move forward with your adoption plans. Your social worker will make sure that you have the training and support you need to prepare for adoptive parenting.


How to start the adoption process


Expert preparation

Our preparation training is provided by specialist adoption social workers and experienced adopters. This means that it is relevant, real and professionally delivered.

A loving family

Children who need new families are referred to Adoption Focus by Local Authorities across England and Wales. Once you’re approved, your allocated social worker will help you find the right child or children for you.


Support after adoption

Adoption Focus will continue to support you and your family after adoption. We have a dedicated adoption support team offering a diverse programme of high quality training and workshops including Therapeutic Play, Managing Teenage Behaviour, Life Story Work and specific support for families and friends of our adopters. This support is there for you and your family whenever you need it.
