Consider Adopting in Cornwall

It's National Adoption Week & Heart's learnt 40 children are adopted every year in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly

There are more than 3 thousand children in local authority care across England who are waiting for an adoptive family. 

Adoption is a way of providing the secuirty of a new family when it is not possible for a child to be brought up by his/her own parents.

Families for Children are committed to providing adoption support to children and families, and aim to treat prospective adopters with respect and honesty while making the process of assessment an open and comfortable experience.



There are eligibility criteria but no 'blanket bans' on the grounds of age, weight, appearance, disability, sexuality, income or marital status. 

ALL applications are considered on merit. Children who are adopted come from diverse backgrounds and some have diverse needs. 

For more information and to find out if you could become a prospective adoptive parent go to 

Or ring (01364) 645 480 They can answer all your questions and send out an information pack which includes an adoption DVD

Here, around 40 children are adopted every year in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly and now the council want more people to come forward and provide a loving home. 

Eddie lives in Cornwall with his wife Julie - they've adopted three young children and tell Heart they wouldn't have it any other way
