Social services Adoption

The new regional adoption agency

If you are thinking of adopting a child speak to the regional adoption agency – Adoption Counts on 0300 123 2676 or visit the website.

If you are already approved as an adopter, enquiring about letterbox, or are a birth parent requesting support, please call 0161 234 5268.

We’ve set up Adoption Counts with Stockport, Trafford, Salford and Cheshire East councils, and in partnership with adoption agencies Adoption Matters and Caritas Care.

By doing this we will:

  • increase the number of children adopted
  • reduce the length of time children wait to be adopted
  • improve the support families who have adopted get
  • reduce the number of adoption agencies  to be more efficient and effective.
