Coram Adoption East Midlands

If you live in the East Midlands and are interested in adopting, we would love to hear from you.  

Coram has over 40 years’ experience in finding permanent loving families for children needing adoption.  Our welcoming and experienced adoption teams are very familiar with the difficulties of children who have been in care.  

Our East Midlands team acceptsCoram Adoption East Midlands Logo applications from prospective adopters who live within one hour's drive of our office in Shepshed, near Loughborough.

We welcome prospective adopters from a wide range of cultural backgrounds and family types who are able to support the needs of the diverse range of children in care awaiting a new family. 

 

Why adopt with us? 

Coram is one of the UK's largest and most successful independent adoption agencies.  Last year, our teams in London, the East Midlands and East Anglia directly placed over 100 children with loving, permanent adoptive families.  

You can view our latest Ofsted report and read our Statements of Purpose.

Linking children with families

Once adopters are approved, the East Midlands team uses a variety of methods to find the right child or children. We work closely with the East Midlands Adoption Consortium and also look nationally.

Supporting you after adoption - for as long as you need us

We recognise that adoptive families and their children may need support of different kinds as their children grow. We are there for families throughout the process and afterwards - for as long as you need us.  

We pride ourselves in offering long term support after adoption, with a range of post-adoption support services including:

  • Parent support groups
  • Parenting groups
  • Children's groups and camps
  • Creative Therapies
  • Individual help when needed. 

We also have a dedicated guide to help adopted children and young people understand our services.  Download our Guide to Coram East Midlands for Adopted Young People and Children as a pdf.
