About SWLA

The South West London Adoption Consortium brings together four London Boroughs (Kingston, Merton, Richmond and Sutton) to work together in order to recruit, assess and approve adopters for children waiting both locally and nationally.

About SWLA

We work hard to make the adoption process as seamless as possible for our children waiting for adoption and potential adoptive parents. As a partnership of four London boroughs, we have a wealth of experience and a number of children waiting to be matched with their forever families.  In the summer of this year, we will be joining a number of other local authority adoption services and will be known as Adopt South London.  This is part of the national focus on strengthening our service for children.

In the meantime, we remain keen to hear from you and look forward to receiving your enquiry and then from that initial enquiry to assessment, approval and post-approval we are here every step of the way to advise, support and guide you.

We hope that the information in this website will help you decide whether adoption is the right choice for you.
