Thank you for visiting our website which will answer many of your questions about being assessed to adopt a child and what adoption is all about.
In Wandsworth there are a number of children for whom we are looking for permanent family homes, either by adoption, permanent fostering or Special Guardianship.
They are from different racial, cultural and religious backgrounds, girls and boys, sometimes in ones, but also in twos, and even threes and fours, where we are trying to keep families of children together because we feel it is best for them. We are particularly interested to talk to people who might consider taking on brothers and/or sisters together.
They are of a wide age range, but it is important to be aware that even with very young children there may be some degree of risk in relation to their health or development (for example babies whose mothers were misusing drugs or alcohol during the pregnancy).
You may be completely new to adoption, or some way into your assessment with another agency, but we do hope that the information within our website will offer you good insight. Should you have any further questions, please don't hesitate to contact us on 020 8871 7568.
We look forward to hearing from you.
