When you are exploring adoption, you will discover that you have a choice about which agency you can use depending on where you live in the UK. Either your regional adoption agency or a voluntary adoption agency like ours here at CCS. Read more about the differences here.
We work with most families who live in these areas: Bristol, South Gloucestershire, Gloucestershire, Somerset, Bath and North East Somerset, North Somerset, Swindon, Wiltshire and South Wales.
We encourage you to explore and find the agency that suits you the best. But here’s why we think you should consider us.
Finding families for children who need them since 1904
Since 1904 we have found new homes for over 2,300 children. We’re one of the largest voluntary adoption agencies in the South West and find homes for over 20 children every year.Book an Information Evening

We promise to provide our families as much support as they need for as long as they need, whether that’s a listening ear, or working to provide a package of therapy. Through The Centre, we offer a wide range of activities that connect and support adoptive families.Visit The Centre
Since 2017 we have built a multi-disciplinary, therapy service to provide professional clinical assessments and therapeutic support for our adoptive families. With funding through the Adoption Support Fund, we are able to create individual, bespoke packages of support wherever they are needed by our families.Visit Our Therapy Service

Many of us have lives touched by adoption
Several members of our advice team have adopted themselves, so have been where you are now and know how it feels. You can talk to them to explore your questions about the process and concerns about what it might be like to adopt and to work out if adopting might be for you.Talk with an Adopter
