Northern Ireland

We provide support to adopters and prospective adopters in Northern Ireland through a dedicated office, based in Belfast. This page provides information on adoption and the kind of support we can provide for adopters in Northern Ireland.

This annual publication details statistical information on children adopted from care in Northern Ireland during the last financial year.

A range of information is available about these children and their adopters as well as the duration between the various stages of the adoption process.
