Every year, dozens of single people and couples throughout Peterborough, Cambridgeshire, East Anglia and the East Midlands region adopt and become new families for a child, or children, who can no longer be brought up by their birth parents. The children in our care need people like you to adopt them and give them love, security, trust, a home and a new family for life.

Peterborough Fostering (53)

You might think adopting and becoming an adopter is too difficult. Or you’ll get turned down based on your age or particular circumstances. Misconceptions often stop people taking the next step and going on to adopt!

In reality, most people we assess go on to adopt and have children placed with them.

Whether you’re making initial enquiries about adoption, or looking to take the next steps and perhaps begin your adoption application, we can provide you with more in-depth knowledge about adoption.
