The South West Adoption Consortium

Clifton Children's Society

‘An adoption agency working with all faiths or none’


We are a professional organisation, working independently of social services departments but often in co-operation with them, especially in placing priority children with new families.


We are happy to hear from couples and single people of any or no religion and of any ethnic origin, who may want to talk about adopting children with additional needs.


There are very few babies offered for adoption and for this reason we do not accept applications from people who could only consider a baby placement.


Children with additional needs means that one or more of the following terms would describe them:


  • All children over the age of 12 months

  • A child who has mental, physical or emotional disabilities

  • Groups of brothers and sisters

  • Children whose development may be uncertain due to factors in their background or early life.
