Find out about Adoption events

Sisters peer out from behind a tree-trunk, perhaps playing hide and seek

Our adoption events are free. At the event, you'll:

  • hear first-hand from adopters
  • find out about the children waiting to be adopted
  • meet our social workers and be able to ask them any question.

The events are not suitable for children.

How to attend an event

To tell us you want to attend an event, call us or email us to reserve a place. Tell us you're interested in adopting to receive an adoption information pack.
