Inter-country adoption

Adopting a child from a country outside the UK is called Inter-Country Adoption. We have an agreement with PACT (link opens in new window) (Parents and Children Together) to advise enquirers about adopting a child from abroad. PACT may go on to complete the assessment for prospective adopters who wish to adopt from overseas.

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 PACT directly by calling 0300 456 4800 or emailing
