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, such as; single adopters, LGBT adopters, married, cohabiting or civil partnership adopters.

We are looking for people who can provide loving forever homes to children; between the ages of 2–7 years, children with additional needs, siblings and children needing foster to adopt placements.

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.

We are always looking for adopters for children with complex or significant needs, over the age of 2 or part of a sibling group.
