Inter-country adoption

Inter-country adoption

If you are thinking about adopting a child from a country outside of the UK you still need to be assessed and approved by a recognised adoption agency in this country.

Your assessment is done by a voluntary adoption agency called the Inter Country Adoption Centre if you live in Hampshire.

If you live in Isle of Wight, Southampton or Portsmouth you will need to contact your local authority.
