Adoption East Midlands

Instructions and guidance on how to adopt in Derbyshire.


Adoption East Midlands

We're now part of a partnership called Adoption East Midlands.

We've joined forces with Nottinghamshire County Council, Nottingham City Council and Derby City Council to more effectively find the best matches for children needing to be adopted and people hoping to adopt.

And you can find all the information you need in one place.

Adoption East Midlands has more information and we'll help you through the adoption process.

You can also find out all about the guidance and support we'll provide after you've adopted.

When you feel ready to take the first step towards adoption contact the Regional Adoption Agency to find out how we can help you get started on your journey towards becoming an adoptive parent.

We retain responsibility for step-parent adoption and intra country adoption. If you'd like to know more, please read the statement of purpose attached to this page.

We look forward to hearing from you.
