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.

We hold a number of Family events throughout the year to enable adoptive families to meet informally.
