Welcome from Roger Gough, Cabinet Member for Children, Young People and Education


Roger Gough

The welfare of our children is of paramount importance and our adopters offer those who cannot return home a real opportunity to achieve lifelong security. You can help to ensure children reach their potential by providing them with a loving and caring family throughout their childhood and beyond.

If you are considering adopting a child or children, please look at our application process and if you would like to find out more get in touch on 03000 422373 or at adoption@kent.gov.uk. We are always keen to tell you more about the adoption journey with Kent Adoption Service, including how we can support you during and after the process. We will be open with you about what’s involved and will deal with your enquiry sensitively.

If you are already an adoptive parent, you can access a range of support from our post adoption support team. To find out more about what is available to you, please contact us on 03000 420508 or at PAST@kent.gov.uk.

Children’s services in Kent are now among the top 30% in the country. A recent OFSTED inspection (PDF, 645.0 KB) found the adoption service to be delivering a ‘good’ service to children and families. I wish you every success in your adoption journey.
