Adoption

Adoption is a way for children who are unable to live with their birth parents or other members of their extended family, to become part of another family. It is a legal process and a lifelong commitment for the child’s adoptive parents.

Adoption is a legal process by which the rights and responsibilities of a child’s natural parents are transferred to the adoptive parents by a Court.

In Calderdale, we need adoptive families for a number of children, in particular groups of brothers and sisters, over 2's and children with additional needs.
