West Dunbartonshire HSCP needs families for children of all ages, sometimes children on their own or with their brothers and sisters, with a wide range of needs but with a great deal to offer their new family.

Adopters don't need qualifications - they need to be genuinely committed to offering a permanent stable, loving and nurturing home to children who have experienced loss in their lives.

Criteria for Adopting:

All applicants must be over 21 years old

Applications should be able to parent a child until they reach the age of independence

Applications will be accepted from:

  • Single Applicants
  • Married Couples
  • Non married couples/same sex couples/LGBT

Applications will be accepted from enquirers both, with or without children.

Applications will not be accepted from enquirers currently undergoing any form of infertility treatment or who are on a waiting list for treatment.
