Initial Home Visit

One of our social workers will come and visit you at home to talk to you about the adoption process and consider whether an application from you would be suitable.  They will ask you about your motivation to adopt and discuss the issues and challenges of adoption.  The home visit also gives you the chance to ask any questions you may have.  

When the results of the initial home visit have been evaluated, the Adoption Team Manager will decide whether or not to proceed to Stage 1.
