With 57 babies and children awaiting families, we are looking for people like you to change the lives of these vulnerable children.

We have a range of children aged between 0 and 6 years old including sibling groups, children from BAME heritages and those with additional needs.

If you’d like to know more about adoption, please either get in touch or book on to our You Can Adopt event.

Who are we?

We are committed to a culture of inclusivity and diversity. Our mission is to unite children with loving families who will cherish and support them unconditionally and we know that culture and diversity bring richness to children’s lives. We welcome and celebrate families from all faith and culture backgrounds, including single parents, gay, bisexual, transgender parents and those who may live with disabilities. We commit to providing a safe, welcoming, and affirming environment for everyone involved in the adoption process, embracing the unique qualities and experiences that each family brings to the adoption journey.

As a Regional Adoption Agency we have 6 local authority partners – Leicester, Leicestershire, Lincolnshire, Northamptonshire, North Lincolnshire, and Rutland. For the last 4 years, these teams have worked collaboratively to ensure excellence in adoption services.

We hope you find the information you need on our website but also wanted to let you know that our knowledgeable team are always on hand to answer any questions you may have, simply use the enquire button or give us a call.

It has been a joy to see two children change from being insecure and shy to confident. The love and happiness our children have brought us has been the best thing we have experienced. Adoption changes both your life and a child's life for the better.

These powerful words come from Anton and Tony, a couple who recently adopted brothers William and Freddie with help from Family Adoption Links.

Lockdown was life-changing for all of us but especially for Anton and Tony as they brought their new sons William and Freddie home just before the first lockdown last year.
