Adopting a child
Coronavirus update - Changes to our adoption information events
Due to the Coronavirus outbreak, our adoption information events will be on hold for the time being. This is a really challenging time, but it is important that we all remember that the number of children who need us hasn’t changed - and we still need adopters to come forward.
If you were planning to come along to one of our events, we’d like instead to offer you an appointment using either Skype, Facetime or a 1-1 phone call with a member of the adoption recruitment team. They will be happy to give you all the information you would receive at the events and will answer any questions you may have. We are 100% still here to talk to anyone considering adoption and who wants to know more about the process. Please do get in touch with the adoption team on 01494 586 349 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org
Adoption is often the best outcome for children who cannot live with their birth family and will not be able to return to their care in the future.
Buckinghamshire Council's Adoption Team holds regular information sessions where you can come along, without commitment, to find out what's involved in becoming an adopter.
You will learn how the right match is made between parents and children, and how as an adoption family you'll then receive ongoing support which was considered by Ofsted to be a 'considerable strength' of the service in Buckinghamshire.
