And… we’re live!

We’re proud to announce the launch of Aspire Adoption, one of the first Regional Adoption Agencies in England. We are a partnership of three Local Authorities; Bournemouth Borough Council, Dorset County Council, and the Borough of Poole and we have formed following the Government’s expectation that Regional Adoption Agencies will be set-up across England to achieve the following;

  • Enable better targeting for the recruitment of prospective adopters
  • Speed up the matching and placement of children
  • Improve adoption support services
  • Potentially create efficiency savings through combining resources.

Much hard work has gone into the development of Aspire, and we’re proud to launch its services today, 3rd July 2017. Our new website has been designed to provide extensive information which is readily accessible to those considering adoption or special guardianship, and is a great stepping stone for advice before deciding to contact one of the Aspire team.

We are delighted to offer a range of support services to all parties connected with adoption including families who have adopted, adopted adults and birth families. We also offer support services to families created through special guardianship. In addition to specialist support services, Aspire provides social events, support groups, training and contact services.

Aspire has a fantastic team in the new organisation and we’re confident that its launch will be a great success in growing families together across Bournemouth, Dorset and Poole.
