The Process

The adoption process starts with your first email or call to us, right through to a child's first years with you and beyond. Below is an overview of the stages of the adoption process to give you an idea of what to expect. We have had to adapt many of our processes around the current Covid-19 restrictions. We ensure that our work is now conducted safely adhering to the latest guidance using a mixture of online technology as well as some face-to-face meetings where it is safe and appropriate to do so.
