Expansion into the North East region

On 10 September 2018, DFW Adoption, based in Durham, became part of the Adoption Matters group. There is a full merger of the two organisations in process and as of 1 April 2019, DFW Adoption will become part of the Adoption Matters family and will be re-branded as Adoption Matters.


DFW Adoption shares the same values & ethos as Adoption Matters and we are excited about expanding into the North East region to continue the tradition we have for excellent service, expertise and an environment our families and colleagues want to be a part of.


Together with the DFW Adoption staff, we want to build on the excellent reputation that DFW Adoption has in the North East, using the resources of a combined and united organisation.


Both agencies have an Ofsted rating of Outstanding and each have had this awarded on four consecutive inspections. This is a joint legacy for us to build on for the future.


We are delighted to now cover the North East region up to the borders of Scotland, our coverage map on our contact page here will help you see our new expanded area.   We look forward to welcoming many more new families in this new region.
