Further information 

We have many children who need a loving home, from a wide variety of racial and religious backgrounds and age groups. We have single children, children separated from their brothers and sisters, and children in sibling groups who need to be kept together: they are all in need of a permanent family.

They also all need families who reflect the heritage they come from as closely as possible. We encourage families to consider applying to adopt with Hammersmith and Fulham Council when we feel they can meet the needs of the specific children waiting within the borough.

Please look through our pages to find out more about our service to prospective adoptive families and the children waiting for adoption.

We look forward to hearing from you.
