Adopters are viewed by Barking and Dagenham as an important and valuable resource for children in need of adoption. As a result great care is taken in the training, assessment and support of all applicants. We offer a service to all our residents and also welcome applications from those living outside the area.
We are looking for forever families for children from all backgrounds and for sibling groups who want to stay together. We also need families who could parent a child with disabilities.
All our children have had a rough start and deserve a loving and stable family life. Many have had to parent younger siblings, or even drug or alcohol dependent parents, so they need a home were they can have fun and learn to really laugh again and just be children. They will need consistent boundaries and unconditional support in developing to their full potential.
You can adopt if you...
- Are single
- Are not married
- Are a gay or lesbian single carer or couple
- Already have birth children
- Are disabled
- Consider yourself an 'older' parent
- Have a modest income
You do need to genuinely want to be parent/s and you will have to enjoy having a child or children in your home. You need to have 'stickability' and be able to go that extra mile.
If you are interested in adoption please come along to one of our open sessions, meet the adoption team and parents who have adopted children:
Saturday 4 October, 2.00pm to 4.00pm, Broadway Theatre, Barking, IG11 7NB
Thursday 6 November, 6.30pm to 8.30pm, Relish Café, 2 Town Square, Barking, IG11 7NB
