Who can adopt?
We are not always able to accept applications but we will give careful consideration to the qualities and experiences offered by all potential applicants. We welcome applications from:
- single applicants and couples of all ages
- childless applicants and those who already have a child or children
- applicants from different cultural and religious backgrounds
- applicants who are heterosexual, gay, lesbian, bisexual or transgender
Once approved, adopters take on all the responsibilities and duties of parents. This is finalised through the court.
