Our Durham County Council adoption team are offering face-to-face or virtual one-to-one appointments for those in Durham and surrounding area. We know that starting to research adoption can be daunting – there are lots of unknowns and questions mixed in with excitement and anticipation.
Whilst some prospective adopters are happy to attend our online group information events, others prefer to speak to us one-to-one
Appointments are designed to fit around you and our friendly team are happy to speak to you at a time and in a way that works best for you. Appointments, can be held in person at your home or elsewhere, over the phone, or online via Teams.
During the hour-long appointment an adoption expert will tell you all about the adoption process, the children in our care and how long it takes to complete the application process (it can be as little as six months). There will also be plenty of opportunity for you to discuss your own situation, and for you to ask any questions that are specific to your own circumstances.
The one-to-one sessions are suitable for those who are at the very start of the conversation, as well as for those who are ready to take the next step and apply.
Appointments available at a time to suit you
To book an appointment please email firstname.lastname@example.org with your availability, preferred way to meet, who would like to attend your appointment and your location.
Rest assured, we are here to help you decide if adoption is right for you – there’s no pressure to progress at the session and you are encouraged to ask any questions you might have during the appointment to make sure you get the most out of the opportunity.
