Adopt and be the someone in a child’s life
About Adopt Thames Valley
Adopt Thames Valley is a regional adoption agency (RAA) which is a partnership of seven local authorities and three voluntary adoption agencies across Berkshire, Oxfordshire and Wiltshire, working together to recruit and support a range of adopters, and so find forever families for children both locally and nationally.
We prioritise families for children aged 4 and over, sibling groups, children with additional needs, and children of black and minority ethnic heritage. These children can often find themselves waiting longer.
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 discover if adoption is right for you. We would love to hear from you!
Events with Adopt Thames Valley
Adopt Thames valley hold informal adoption information events throughout the year across Berkshire, Oxfordshire and Wiltshire. At these you can find out more about adoption and learn more about the training and support available to adoptive families. You will hear from adoptive parents and meet adoption workers. You’ll also be able to talk a member of staff in confidence and ask questions about your particular circumstances. There’s even tea and biscuits!
