We are a same sex couple, can we adopt? Yes of course, At ARC Adoption North East we welcome enquiries from all types of adopters, including all members of the LGBT+ community. It may interest you to know that in 2021, almost 1 in 3 of the adopters approved to adopt by ARC Adoption were in same sex relationships. Watch Jamie and Tom's story below: All LGBT+ parents who adopt through ARC Adoption North East, benefit from our membership to New Family Social, the charity dedicated to LGBT+ adoption and fostering. ARC Adoption North East also has a dedicated support team which offers a variety of support to adopters including social and online peer support, support groups and our Buddy service.
