Adopting from another country

Adopting a child from a country outside of the UK is called inter country adoption.

We have an agreement with IAC (The Centre for Adoption) a specialist inter country adoption service to advise enquirers about adopting a child from abroad and to complete the assessment of prospective adopters.

Should you require further information on inter country adoption or wish to take forward an application to become an approved adopter for a child from another country please contact the IAC advice line on 020 8447 4753 Mondays - Fridays between 10am and 1pm. Call backs are made by advisors up until 4 pm.

All adoption agencies and local authorities will charge for carrying out a home study for inter country adoption. However IAC will not charge Havering residents for advice, information and initial discussions about adopting children from abroad.
