Build a family and change a life

If you live in the Midlands, the South West of England or the Thames Valley Area and are interested in adopting a child, we can help.

Here at Barnardo’s Adoption Midlands and South West, we can talk you through the adoption process and answer all your questions.

If you adopt through us, we will give you all the emotional, practical and legal support you need to help you:

  • find the right child
  • prepare for the adoption
  • feel supported all the way through the process and in the years ahead

Currently, enquiries are closed in the Midlands, South West and Thames Valley area due to high demand until the 1st October.
