About Us


So who are we? We're a forward thinking regional adoption agency (RAA) made up of the adoption teams from 6 local authorities (Leicester, Leicestershire, Lincolnshire, North Lincolnshire, Rutland and Northamptonshire). Since October 2020, our professional teams have worked together to share best practice, develop services and deliver the best possible services to their adopters.

Vision Statement

We’re a dynamic regional partnership aimed at delivering excellence in every aspect of adoption.

As 6 individual Local Authority adoption teams from Leicester, Leicestershire, Lincolnshire, North Lincolnshire, Northamptonshire and Rutland, we’re working collaboratively to offer potential adopters a multitude of benefits. This includes…

  • a larger pool of children to ensure the best possible match
  • a comprehensive range of support services to ensure a positive adoption journey
  • the widest pool of professionals who engage in innovative and ground-breaking new adoption practices

The services we provide…

  • We recruit, assess and train people who would like to adopt
  • We match approved adopters with children from within our region and nationally
  • We provide post adoption support, training, events, advice lines and more
  • We assess and process applications for the Adoption Support Fund
  • We support birth parents, siblings and families
  • We facilitate contact between adopted families and birth families

Quite simply, the child and the adopter is at the heart of everything we do and our conscientious team are very proud of the families that we have created and supported over the years.

I want to praise the social workers directly to you, they are truly an asset to the county and the wider profession! Their professionalism, compassion, level-headed nature and ‘all out’ commitment to the children within your team's care and also the adopters is phenomenal.
