Adoption

Find out more about adoption with Cumbria County Council


Adopt Coast To Coast

Adopt Coast to Coast is now the official adoption agency for Cumbria County Council.  We are part of a Regional Adoption Agency working alongside partners at Durham County Council and Together for Children (which delivers children's services on behalf of Sunderland City Council) to find safe and loving permanent homes for children in our care.

For those looking to adopt for the first time, or for people looking to adopt again, we have a dedicated Adopt Coast to Coast website where you can find out more about the adoption process, and our upcoming information events and bookable private appointments.  You will also find our articles and advice here, with stories from real families who have adopted with us.

Adopt Coast to Coast was formed to recruit prospective adopters, share best practice and to ensure children in our care who need a family through adoption are able to find the right family at the earliest opportunity. So, whilst we are part of Adopt Coast to Coast, we still operate our adoption services from within Cumbria through our experienced service.

If you have already adopted and are looking for post-adoption support, you can find further information on the adoption support in Cumbria web page
