Mental and physical health and well being are not barriers to adoption provided you can care for the children you adopt.

During the adoption process you will be asked to arrange a full medical which will be carried out by your GP and advice will be sought from our medical advisor regarding any issues raised.

Members of the ARC Adoption North East team are happy to talk to you and offer further guidance around this.

If you would like to know more about adoption and starting the adoption process with ARC Adoption North East and the support available, please contact us.
