Our adoption assessment focuses on the outcomes for the children involved, so our process looks at who are the best people to meet the needs of the children being adopted.
You can be:
married, single, in a civil partnership, living with a partner, divorced or widowed
of any sexual orientation or gender identity
of any religion or no religion
of any cultural or ethnic background
a home owner or a tenant
with children already or without
the partner of the child’s parent
Living in the UK
You don’t have to be a British citizen to adopt a child, but:
you (or your partner, if you’re a couple) must have a fixed and permanent home in the UK, Channel Islands or the Isle of Man
you (and your partner, if you’re a couple) must have lived in the UK for at least 1 year before you begin the application process.
