Care for children and families


Our Adoption Team holds regular information sessions where you can come along, without commitment, to find out what's involved in becoming an adopter.


Children need foster homes for a variety of reasons. We have children of all ages who need care, but in particular children aged up to the age of 5, teenagers, and sibling groups.

Report a concern about a child

If you're worried that a child or young person is being abused, let us know.

Young carers

Young carers are 5-18 years old and care for a family member with a physical or mental illness, disability, drug or alcohol addiction.

Personal details and your records

We keep a record (case record), if you or a member of your family have been referred to, assessed by, or are receiving a service we have provided or arranged.

16 & 17 year olds at risk of homelessness

If you don't have anywhere to stay, or you're having problems at home, you can contact Buckinghamshire Council's First Response Team who will help you understand what your options are.


Before we can decide the best way to help, we need to carry out an assessment.
