Adoption. It’s a journey worth making

Welcome to Adopt Thames Valley

Adopt Thames Valley is a regional adoption agency (RAA) which is a partnership of seven local authorities and one voluntary adoption agency across Berkshire, Oxfordshire and the Swindon area, working together to recruit and support a range of adopters, and so find forever families for children both locally and nationally.

Whatever your background and circumstances, we would love to explore with you whether adoption is right for you.

Our children also come from all sorts of backgrounds. Currently the children waiting for a forever home range in age from 0 to 8 years; 13 are under 3. There are single children and sibling groups of 2 or 3, children with additional needs, and children of black and minority ethnic heritage.

Our aim is to make the process to adopt quicker and simpler for you, so why not take your first step on the adoption journey and contact us. Fill in our online enquiry form or call us on 0800 731 0171. We would love to hear from you!
