You can find out all the information you need about adoption on any of the evening/day information sessions above, and have all your questions answered by friendly, professional staff.

Before coming along to one of the information sessions above, whether evening or during the day, you need to need to register by emailing adoptioncentre@portsmouthcc.gov.uk; or telephoning 023 9287 5294. Once you have registered your interest, we will just need a brief, informal chat over the phone (around 15 minutes) with you, before you come along. We look forward to hearing from you.
