adoption@heart is a regional adoption service working with four local authorities in the heart of England to provide adoption services on their behalf.
adoption@heart delivers adoption services on behalf of Dudley, Sandwell, Walsall and Wolverhampton local authorities. We are responsible for finding new homes for the children in their care who are identified for adoption.
As a Regional Adoption Agency, adoption@heart works with the four local authorities to deliver all of their adoption services including:
- Recruiting and assessing adoptive families;
- Finding families for the children from these areas identified for adoption;
- Providing adoption support services to all those affected by adoption – children, adoptive families and birth families.
adoption@heart knows that adoption has lifelong implications for all those involved in the process now and throughout their lives. So we see support as the key in everything we do. Our Adoption Support service is made up of a multi disciplinary team including a clinical psychologist, play therapist, social workers and others with specific skills and qualifications. The team offers a range of support to enable you and your family – from social events to parenting programmes, all of which are available before and after a child is placed with you.
