About us

Helping children find loving families

Adopt East is a Regional Adoption Alliance of eight Local Authorities and two Voluntary Adoption Agencies from across the East of England. Adopt East is committed to delivering the highest possible quality adoption service to children, families, and birth relatives throughout the area.

While we’re single-minded in our aim, it’s our collaborative, multi-community focused approach that makes us truly special.

As the largest Regional Adoption Agency in the UK, we combine the experience, understanding, and professionalism of Local Authorities in Bedford, Essex, Hertfordshire, Luton, Norfolk, Southend, Suffolk, Thurrock with the invaluable insight of two Voluntary Agency partners, Adoptionplus and Barnardo's, together with the ongoing support of Adoption UK and New Family Social.

Working as one, we pool our resources, share best practice, and ensure every child is given the best possible chance of growing up as part of a caring, loving family.
