Who can adopt

We are always looking for adoptive families for a wide mix of children, from a variety of backgrounds and with ages ranging from preschool to school aged children.

Find out who can adopt.

Further applications on hold

We have had a substantial volume of applications to become adopters for Kent County Council in recent months and as a result we now have a considerable number of households moving through the approval process.  To be fair to those adopters already approved or going through approval processes, we have decided to put on hold any future enquiries for an initial three month period.  We will review the position again in September. 

We understand this may be disappointing and will take your contact details and get in touch with you when the situation changes.  In the meantime, you can contact First4Adoption on 03002 220 022 who can provide you with details of other adoption agencies who may be able to respond to your application.


I have thought about adoption as long as I have thought about having children.
