What will I need to provide in order to be allowed to adopt?


John Li

– You will be required to give details of three-character references each – only one can be from a family member. In total, 6 separate references will be asked of you if you’re adopting as a couple. Your referees will be sent questions by the social workers and they will need to fill out a written reference. One referee will be picked to be interviewed in person by the social worker. Your employer will also need to send a written reference.

– You will need to provide details of all of your previous partners/spouses to be contacted for a reference.

– You will need to provide a detailed medical report

– Give details on your income and finances.-       A credit check and DBS (criminal) check will be done.
