I am single, can I adopt?


There is nothing unusual about single parenting, in 2021, there were 3.0 million single parent families in the UK.

It has been possible for single people to adopt for many, many years and we have approved and placed children with many single adopters, including single people who identify as LGBTQ+.  At Adoption Matters, we know that today families today come in all shapes and sizes, but we understand that it can sometimes be daunting to attend a new event alone. That’s why we allow all of our single parents to bring a ‘plus one’ to all of our Centre for Adoption Support training courses, webinars and events free of charge.
