Next steps

So what are the next steps to starting the adoption journey?


Choosing to complete your family through adoption is one of the most important decisions you may take. It is vital that you work with people that you have confidence in, trust and can offer you the professional support you need. We ensure that we offer the best service we possibly can to you, and to the children who are currently waiting in care to become part of a loving family. Adopt Together is committed to the adoption customer care standards as set out by First4Adoption – Customer Care Standards.


Faith in Families is an approved independent adoption agency and we offer an outstanding adoption service, as recognised in four consecutive OFSTED inspections (latest 2015/2016). We ensure we offer adoptive parents excellent preparation and support as they take on the challenges of creating new families.


Our friendly group of knowledgeable adoption specialists have a wealth of experience in assessing and preparing families for adoption. We will work with you from your initial enquiry, through your preparation, to your adoption approval and beyond to ensure you are fully prepared and are constantly supported.
