Could you adopt a child like me?

Adoption

Our adopters come from all backgrounds and cultures and have adopted children from all over the UK. Our social workers are able to support suitable applicants every step of the way, and 95 per cent of domestic adopters approved by the Royal Borough since 2007 have been linked or matched with a child within a year of approval. Adoption has also become less complex than it used to be.

The Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea, The London Borough of Hammersmith & Fulham and Westminster City Council joined their adoption services in April 2012 to provide a dedicated service for adoption across the three west London local authorities.

You can speak to an adoption social worker on Monday to Friday morning between 9:30am and 5pm on freephone 0800 781 2332 or leave a message and we will call you back the next working day.

One adopter said:

"I would like to take this opportunity  to let  your team know how much I have appreciated the support we have received this past 11 years. Your expertise, professionalism and commitment to the Adoption process really are second to none. We have been lucky."  Jenny – May 2011
