Adoption Counts

A message from the team:

Despite the very uncertain times we are now in, at Adoption Counts we know we have to do everything we can to avoid any delay for those children who need adoptive families.

To that end, we are still very much open and we welcome enquiries and subsequent Registrations of Interests.

Obviously, we are adhering to Government guidelines and the vast majority of our staff are working from home. However, we are still undertaking initial visits, albeit virtually, and will give you all the advice you need to feel comfortable with the technology we are using.

We are now running virtual information events for anyone wanting to consider adoption, so that we can help you get all the advice and information you need to make this life changing decision.

At this time, during Stage 1, home visits will be carried out via video conference. Our preparation training, that usually takes place over 3 days, will soon be available as on-line learning modules. Please don’t forget that the Social Worker that will be allocated to you, will be there to help, guide and support you throughout the process.

We’re also proud to say that we have virtual adoption panels already up and running; just last week three adopters were approved this way.

At Adoption Counts, we work hard to be able to create new families and witness the start of strong, life-long relationships between adoptive parents and children.

That is why, now more than ever, we need families to come forward as adopters to make sure that we can meet all of our children’s needs and do our best by them. We welcome enquiries from all communities and we are particularly keen to hear from people of a BME background, in particular from the Black African and Black Caribbean communities.

Hopes, fears, needs: we are here to listen intently and respond sensitively to them all. Adoption is a big decision, but it could be the best you ever make.

Sue Westwood and all the Adoption Counts team.
