Adoption in MertonAdoption

Adoption is a way of providing a permanent family for a child. Adopting a child is a life changing experience. By providing a supportive and stable home you will be helping children grow into strong, grounded individuals who will move into adolescence and adulthood with an increased self-confidence and a strong sense of self-worth.

There are babies and children in Merton who need adopting right now, and we are looking for prospective adopters who are able to meet the needs of the children currently waiting.

To find out more about adoption and if you have what it takes to care for a Merton child, please see our Part 1 Merton Adoption Information Pack -The Initial Enquiry. (0.3MB)

Merton is part of the South West London Adoption Consortium, a partnership of local authority adoption agencies which provide a coordinated service whose primary aim is to match children with adopters with as little delay as possible.
