This year’s National Adoption Week runs from Monday to Sunday, November 9.

In West Sussex, we need 60 or more adopters every year to provide permanent homes for children who, for whatever reason, are unable to stay with their birth families.

We have a particular need for people who can consider adopting siblings. If you have brothers or sisters, you’ll know just how important the bond between siblings can be.

Deciding to adopt is life-changing. You would be making a lifelong commitment to be a parent, but you won’t be alone. Our adoption team is on hand to offer help and support at every step of the way - before, during and after the adoption process.

If you are thinking about adoption, please get in contact. You can speak to a member of our team by calling 0330 222 7775, or visit to find out more.
