Mid and West Wales Adoption Service


Welcome to Adoption Mid and West Wales


The Regional Adoption Service for Carmarthenshire, Ceredigion, Pembrokeshire and Powys Local Authorities.

We bring experience and knowledge to benefit those in adoption or thinking about adoption.

We have lots of new Training courses for adopters in different parts of our Region.


Are you interested in adoption?

It doesn’t matter whether you already have children, whether you’re single or a couple, whether you’re married, unmarried or in a civil partnership. We’d love to hear from you!

Support for
adoptive parents

You’ll have the support and advice of a named Adoption Social Worker from the start of the process of assessment through to placement and beyond.

Support if you were
adopted

Many adopted people have questions about their history and want help to understand or to trace their birth family. We can help you!

Grant Funding

The Region has been very fortunate to receive grant funding from the Welsh Government to develop our adoption support services. We have now recruited 6 new workers to work in this area and are developing support programmes for groups and individuals.


Life Journey

The Life Journey archive is an online resource aimed at everyone involved with Adoption in Wales. The resource is aimed at Adopters, Foster Carers, Social Workers and support staff, birth parents, adopted children & young people, as well as all professionals involved in the adoption process. All these groups will find something relevant in this resource. We hope you find it useful!

Foster in Mid and West Wales

Currently in Mid and West Wales there are children and other young people that need a caring, loving family to foster them. By becoming a foster carer, you can help make a huge difference to a child or young persons’ life. There are lots of different types of foster care placements available to suit your individual needs and circumstances.

Support for birth parents/families

We also work with birth families, preparing them for the adoption of their child. We also help families to prepare later life information for the child.

Adopting a
step child

If you or your partner is a step parent, you may be concerned about the legal rights and responsibilities you have for the children in your family.

Adopting a child from overseas

Adopting a child from another country, it should be a country that you have links with, or knowledge of the culture, history and language.
