Why Adopt with CCS?

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 local authority, or regional adoption agency, or a voluntary adoption agency like us here at CCS.

We work with families living within about an hour’s distance of our office across the Adoption West and South West areas in 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.


Zoe talks about adopting her son with CCS Adoption, why she chose a Voluntary Adoption Agency for this journey and how it has been for her.

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 30 children every year. Our social workers have over 250 years’ experience of adoption between them.

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.
