Adoption and coronavirus (COVID-19)

Medway Adoption team welcomes new enquiries, and during this difficult time we'll do our best to respond quickly to these.

If you have specific questions about the adoption process and your situation contact us by email at adoption@medway.gov.uk, or phone 01634 335 676.

Whilst we are not currently able to hold the usual information events for people to attend in person we have arranged a virtual information event so that you are able to find out more about adoption.

The next event will be held at 7pm on 12 May 2020. There will be a presentation and the opportunity to ask questions. If you are interested in taking part in this event please email us at adoption@medway.gov.uk or phone 01634 335 676.

We realise that this type of event may not be convenient or appropriate for everyone, however you are welcome to ring and speak with a duty worker on a different day after the event.

Coming soon

We are currently in the process of joining with the London Borough of Bexley Adoption Team and Kent Adoption Team to form a Regional Adoption Agency (R.A.A.). The new combined services will be called Adoption Partnership South East.

Any adopters who start the adoption process after the 1 April 2020 will be the adopters of the new Adoption Partnership Southeast.

We look forward to hearing from you.
