Welcome to Adopt South

I would like to thank you for choosing Adopt South. Hampshire, the Isle of Wight, Portsmouth and Southampton have come together to form a Regional Adoption Agency to provide adoption services across our region. We have joined together to find permanent and loving homes for children who are unable to live with their birth parents or wider family.

Our children range from babies to school aged children. We are particularly keen to speak to people interested in keeping brothers and sisters together and who have the skills and experience to offer a family to children with additional needs and disabilities.

Adopt South will support you through the adoption journey and by joining together we have brought the best practice and experience from each of our four local authorities.

We have exciting new opportunities to help and prepare you such as the use of Virtual Reality to help adopters understand the experiences and needs of our children. Our training, mentoring scheme and adoption support will not only prepare you before a child comes to live with you but also support you when a child is first placed and after the Adoption Order.

This website is designed to help you decide whether adoption might be right for you.

We welcome enquiries from across the South Region and beyond.
