Adoption Team

Coronavirus status: OPEN

Provides support and advice to Adopters and Special Guardians who live in Buckinghamshire or where the adoption/special guardianship was arranged by Buckinghamshire Council.

We are currently offering an advice line every weekday during COVID19; Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday 10am to 4:30pm Please call the team number or email us with a time to call you.

We also provide a consultation service for other professionals on the above number 

All adopters and special guardians are entitled to an assessment of need on request until their children are aged 18.  If the young person requests one, in some circumstances support can be continued if there is an EHCP in place.

At Buckinghamshire Council, we also offer a range of additional services over and above our statutory duty. Please call us to find out more.

If you are a birth parent or an adult adoptee and need some advice regarding adoption/special guardianship please contact us
