Your key to adoption - National Adoption Week

Could you give a young child a secure and loving home?

Our information events are an excellent opportunity to find out the service Kent Adoption provides. We welcome adopters from all walks of life, including:

  • single adopters
  • LGBT adopters
  • adopters who are married, cohabiting or in civil partnerships.

We are looking for people who can provide loving forever homes to sibling groups of all ages, young children with medical needs, and those interested in the Foster to Adopt scheme.

We take pride in offering adopters a wide range of support, not only during their assessment period but also once the child has been adopted and beyond. Adopters can use our comprehensive post-adoption service which was described as being “Excellent” by Ofsted in March 2017, and even won an award for the Excellence in Adoption Practice Award during National Adoption Week in October 2017.

Adoption information events

The Kent Adoption Service welcome new enquiries and during this difficult time will do its best to respond quickly to these.

We are pleased to announce that we will be hosting a Virtual Information Event webinar on Tuesday 12 May at 7pm. For instructions on how to join, please email us at adoption@kent.gov.uk.

Please email adoption@kent.gov.uk if you have specific questions about the adoption process and your situation, or visit our Facebook page.

When we thought about children, we assumed we would go down the 'normal' route.
