Becoming an adoptive parent

Coronavirus (COVID-19) – adoption update

We are still recruiting adopters for Thurrock children and young people. If you are interested in adopting, you can join our information events online and we can hold initial 'visits' by phone or video. Complete an adoption interest form or phone us on 0800 652 1271 and someone from our friendly team will get back to you.

Overview

Every child in our care, who needs permanency via adoption, deserves a loving and caring family. We want to find safe and secure homes with lots of warmth for all the children in our care.

We would like to hear from potential adoptive families in Thurrock and help them prepare for adoption.

If you are interested in adopting a child from Thurrock, please get in touch.
