It takes a real somebody to adopt a child.


Newcastle Adoption Service is looking for families in the North East for younger children with additional needs - these can be children from black and ethnic minority backgrounds, children with complex needs and sibling groups of children.

We welcome applications from all sectors of the community in the North East, so you could be pleasantly surprised. All you really need is a big heart and plenty love to give.

Make an enquiry about adoption here.

One of our social workers will contact you to talk to you more about adopting a child through the Newcastle Adoption Service, or you can contact us directly.

How can we help you?

Our pledge to prospective adopters is that we will send out an information pack to you within 5 working days of your enquiry. We will also invite you to an information evening within two months of your initial enquiry and arrange a follow up interview once we have received your completed enquiry form.
