Fostering for adoption

We know that deciding to adopt is a huge decision but it might not be as scary as you think. Yes it can take a while to go through the process and yes you will be asked lots of questions, but our team will be there every step of the way to help support you during and after adopting.

We offer a great package of support to our adopters including a settling-in grant, adoption allowances where applicable, specialist pre and post-placement support to help you grow as a family. We ensure assessments are completed within the required timescales and will pro-actively family find for our approved adopters so as not to keep you waiting.

Our adoption team are made up of people from lots of different backgrounds and are well trained in being sensitive to people’s cultural and religious beliefs and life experiences.

As the London Borough of Tower Hamlets is small in size, ideally we prefer prospective adopters to live outside the borough. Children waiting for adoption in Tower Hamlets come from many different ethnic backgrounds and we are looking for families who can adopt children of all ages.

Please take the first step and get in contact, our team will be really pleased to hear from you and will help you explore adoption together.
