Adoption

How you can adopt a child in Sandwell

Adopting a child and bringing him or her up as part of your family is a big step. We encourage people from Sandwell and the surrounding regions to find out more about adoption.

The eligibility criteria for adoption includes people who are single, in a relationship whether married or not, a same sex couple, in employment or not working, or already have children or not. You also must have been living as a resident in the UK for at least 12 months.

If you are ready to start the adoption process, you can register for adoption information events.
