Adopting with Concurrent Planning

Adopting with Concurrent Planning is a partnership service delivered by Caritas Care and Adoption Matters.

The service offers care for babies and young children who enter care and are likely to need adoption, but who also still have a small chance of being reunited with their birth family. Carers are dually approved as both foster carers and adopters.

The service is now one of the largest services of its kind in the UK and covers the whole of the North West including; Lancashire, Greater Manchester; Cheshire; Wirral and Merseyside areas. We have now placed over 150 children through the service and approved over 120 individuals and families.
