Welcome to the East London Permanence and Adoption Consortium.

We are a group of six local authorities – Barking & Dagenham, Havering, Newham, Redbridge, Tower Hamlets, Waltham Forest and the voluntary adoption agency Barnardo’s. The staff in our adoption teams come from lots of different backgrounds and are well trained in being sensitive to people’s cultural and religious beliefs and life experiences.

We work closely together to find secure, loving and permanent homes for our children. We provide support throughout the assessment and support after a child is placed with you.

We are there for you every step of the way.
