All prospective adopters must meet three basic criteria to be considered to adopt
- Applicants must be at least 21 years of age
- At least one applicant if a couple or the sole applicant must be domiciled in the British Isles or both of the couple or the single applicant must have been habitually resident in the British Isles for at least one year
- No applicant, nor any member of their household, can have been convicted or cautioned in respect of a specified offence.
- With or without children
- Be straight or gay
- Single or a couple

We are keen to attract a wide range of prospective adopters and welcome expressions of interest from all interested parties.
While we are not always able to accept applications we will give careful consideration to the qualities and experiences being offered by all of the potential adoptive applicants who contacts us.
Children are not all the same and nor are good adopters.
