The South West Adoption Consortium

Gloucestershire County Council


Making the decision to adopt is one of the biggest steps anyone can make, but also one of the most rewarding.  Our aim in Gloucestershire is to give all children the best possible life chances, which in some cases means adoption. We are looking for adoptive parents for children of all ages and we are particularly seeking people who can adopt children over the age of three and sibling groups. Children available for adoption may have been abused or neglected in the past, or have physical or learning difficulties - all will benefit from a stable, loving, permanent family.


There is no upper age limit to adopt and we are keen to hear from married and unmarried couples, single people, lesbian and gay couples and individuals, those who have their own children, homeowners or those renting property


What do I do if I’m interested?


In order to decide whether adoption is the right thing for you, we think it is important that you find out as much as you can.  We recommend that you visit our web site to find out more information and you can also download our information pack.
