Find out how you can take that first step toward adoption

Find out more about the new adoption service for west Cheshire at a pop-up shop taking place at Storyhouse in Chester on Wednesday 6 September, 10am – 3pm.

Together for adoption is the new organisation which supports anyone interested in taking those first steps towards adoption as well as supporting families once they have completed the process.

It brings together the adoption services for five local authorities – Cheshire West and Chester, Halton and WWiSH which incorporates St Helens, Warrington and Wigan.

It is one of the first of its kind in the country and will bring a wealth of expertise to help anyone who is thinking of adopting and support them throughout the process.

At the pop-up session there will be advice on how to start the journey of adoption as well as the kind of support both pre and post adoption you can expect to receive.

Cllr Nicole Meardon, Cabinet Member for Children and Young People said: “This is an exciting new period for the adoption service in west Cheshire and will provide those going through the adoption journey with the best support available and find families that are the right match for our children in a timely way.”
