You never forget the moment you first meet your child. Mine was six years old.

Sometimes superheroes reside in the hearts of children fighting huge battles.

Exceptional children, need exceptional parents.


On March 1st 2019 Adoption West becomes a live Regional Adoption Agency
The launch of Adoption West represents an exciting new chapter in how adoption services are provided. Local Authorities in Bath and North East Somerset, Bristol, Gloucestershire, North Somerset, South Gloucestershire and Wiltshire have joined together to provide a dedicated adoption service. The aim of this collaboration between authorities is to deliver an adoption service that offers improved outcomes for both children, people who want to adopt and people whose lives have been affected by adoption.

Adoption is all about making a positive difference to a child’s life and providing a stable, loving and permanent home for a child who, for whatever reason, is not able to live with their birth family.

Making the decision to adopt is one of the biggest steps anyone can make, but also one of the most rewarding. In order to decide whether adoption is right for you we think it is important that you find out as much as you can. We hope that this site gives you the information you need to progress on your journey, but please get in touch with Adoption West if we can help with anything further.
