Adoption counts

Adoption Counts is a collaborative adoption agency, bringing the professional expertise and specialist skills of five local authorities from across Greater Manchester and Cheshire together to deliver adoption services of the highest quality.

We work with families in Cheshire East, Manchester, Salford, Stockport, and Trafford and the scale of our organisation means that we are able to forge better matches between parents and children, to create relationships that last. We welcome enquiries from in or around the region. 

We are currently looking for adopters for children of all ages and we currently have a high number of children aged 2 and under who need families. Additionally we are always very keen to hear from people who will consider children aged four and above, sibling groups, children of a BME background and children with complex needs. We have a number of adopters who have adopted children in family groups of three who would be delighted to speak with anyone who may feel they could consider this and would like to know more. 

Your family is our focus and our team is passionate about giving you the very best care and support at every stage of the adoption journey, to achieve the best outcome both for you and for children awaiting adoption.
