Family is at the heart of all we do

Adopt East is a regional adoption alliance across the East of England. Experience has taught us that family is central to a child’s emotional wellbeing and development.
About us

A match for life

Our focus throughout is on both the child and the adopter. Only when we recognise each is right for the other do we know we’ve found a match for life. Giving every child a better chance of growing up as part of a safe, stable, loving family.

The impact of adoption on children and adoptive parents

Finding a caring and committed family for a child will transform their world, giving them stability, safety, and a loving, nurturing home. For adoptive parents, there’s the unique opportunity to experience the joys and rewards of raising a child, teaching them to ride a bike, helping with their homework, or rediscovering the world through the eyes of a child.
