Is now the right time for you to adopt with Southwark?

We have children of  African and African Caribbean heritage waiting for adopters.  We also have White British children aged 4 and above.

We are especially hoping to hear from those interested in adopting children with more complex needs as well as sibling groups.

Why not come and Talk to us  - we would love to hear from you.  You could come to an information meeting or one of our informal weekly drop in sessions, where you can chat to Jane about what adoption would mean to you.

You can read all about the process and view our Statement of Purpose here.

Watch this video, where people who have adopted their child with Southwark talk about their experience.
