• Interested in adoption? We'd love to hear from you!

  • There for you
    every step of the way.

    Western Bay Adoption Service is made up of three collaborating local authority adoption agencies – Bridgend, Neath Port Talbot and Swansea.

    By working collaboratively, the Western Bay service offers an enhanced adoption support service to potential adopters, adopters, adopted children and those adults who were adopted as children.

    We aim to provide the very best services for adoption – and our local, but centrally coordinated service, enables us to match children with adopters with as little delay as possible. We know about all the children waiting for new families within our three county boroughs and we aim to ensure that children are linked and matched with the families who can best meet their needs.

  • Discover the joys of parenthood.

    Our commitment to working closely together, ensures the experience of adopters in the region is second to none. We seek to place our children with agencies in Wales as far as possible and if it is right for the child and adopters. This helps us to work more closely for everyone’s benefit to help the wide range of children who are in need of loving families. We aim to do whatever it takes to help prospective adopters on their journey to become the loving and capable parents our children deserve.

    All our children are special to us and we welcome your interest in offering a home to a child.
