Please be advised that from 1 October 2022 Suffolk County Council will be closed for adoption recruitment. We will continue to provide help or advice around adoption and our adoption brochure is available to download from our website which contains useful information.
To find out if you are eligible for fostering or adopting contact the team below.
Foster carers provide a safe, stable home and care for a child or young person who can’t live with their own family for various reasons.
The Suffolk fostering team and the adoption team work closely together.
"Fostering is the best thing I've done in my lifetime. Get in touch and give it a go!" - Suffolk Foster Carer
Adoption is a separate process from fostering. Adoption is a process which transfers all legal responsibility for a child to their new parent(s).
"You can't change the world, but you can change the world for one person." - Suffolk Adopter
At our Recruitment Events (currently held online), our team will be happy to answer any questions you have about fostering or adoption. We currently run these monthly.
We also attend various events around the county where people can come and talk to us and get further information.
