Wigan adoption is part of the WWiSH Adoption Service which serves the children and families of Wigan, Warrington and St Helens and is based in offices at Lowton. Our work involves:

  • Finding families for children who need to be placed for adoption
  • Supporting children and families before, during and after adoption
  • Recruiting and assessing adults to be adopters for our children.

Adults who would like to be considered as adopters should contact WWiSH (external link).

Are you a step parent?

If you are a Wigan resident and would like to find out more about step parent adoption contact the fostering team.
