The South West Adoption Consortium

Bristol City Council


Bristol City Council is looking for adopters for about 50 children at any one time. The children generally range from 1yr to 8 yrs of age. About 30% of the children are black or dual heritage, some children have additional needs and some children need to be placed with their siblings. All of the children will have experienced some adversity often caused by neglect or abuse. The children need adoptive families who have the capacity to meet their needs and provide them with stable and loving homes.


Bristol welcomes adoption applications from people irrespective of their gender, race, religion or sexuality.  You can be single, married, in a partnership or not, with or without children.
