We are looking for patient and adaptable people who are practically and emotionally prepared to take on the responsibility of looking after a child. You also need to be comfortable talking to a child about their history and their birth family.
Bexley need adopters for babies, older children and sibling groups from a range of ethnic backgrounds.
We have placed many children in fostering for adoption placements which have proven to be very successful. There is specific training and assessment offered in relation to fostering for adoption.
You can find out further information about adoption and fostering for adoption in our Step in to Adoption booklet (PDF, 6MB).
Hear some personal experience of adopters by viewing the video’s below:
You will have further opportunity to hear from adopters and social workers by attending one of our monthly information sessions. We will be able to give you further details about this, when you make contact with us.
If you are unsure about whether your individual circumstances are acceptable please call us. We are here to help you make the decision.
People from a range of different backgrounds become adopters but there are some legal requirements.
