Adoption. It’s a journey worth making

Welcome to Adopt Thames Valley

Adopt Thames Valley is a regional adoption agency (RAA). We are 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 find forever families for children both locally in our care and nationally.

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

“Most people have the qualities to be a great parent: love, time and commitment to a child are three of the most important attributes you can have,” says Teresa Rogers, Head of ATV.

“Adopting a child is rewarding and life changing. If you can provide a safe, loving, stable home for a child or children who need it, the chances are you can adopt, and we would love to hear from you.”

Our aim is to make the process to adopt quicker and simpler, 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. 

Discover how you can transform a child’s life through adoption with our programme of virtual information sessions.

At these you can find out what adoption involves today, learn more about the training and support we offer to adoptive families, and have the chance to ask questions. Find out more and book your place below.
