Grow your family with Adoption Counts


Have you ever considered adoption? 2019 could be the year you complete your family with Adoption Counts - the regional adoption agency for Cheshire East, Manchester, Salford, Stockport, and Trafford.

Adoption is life changing. At Adoption Counts, children and families are the sole focus. The agency strives to match children with the right family for them, at the right time, by approving adopters equipped to meet the needs of children waiting. They provide a wide range of pre- and post-adoption support for all adopters and the team is passionate about giving adopters the very best care at every stage of the adoption journey, to achieve the best outcome both for them and for children.

Sue Westwood, Agency Manager: "2018 was a great year for our Agency and we are proud to have been able to create new families and witness the start of strong, life-long relationships between adoptive parents and children. However, we still need more families to come forward as adopters, to make sure that we can meet all of our children's needs and do our best by them. We are looking forward to 2019 and we are eager to hear from people that are considering adoption."

Adoption Counts is currently looking for adopters for children of all ages and are always very keen to hear from people who will consider children aged four and above, sibling groups, children of a BME background and children with complex needs.

Adopters come from all walks of life. You can be gay, heterosexual, single, in a civil partnership, married or co-habiting – all applications are very welcome and will be treated equally.
