Contact the Regional Adoption Agency

Derby City Council, Nottingham City Council, Derbyshire County Council and Nottinghamshire County Council have combined their adoption services to form a Regional Adoption Agency.

There is now one service, hosted by Nottinghamshire County Council, to provide adoption services across the four areas and we can accept adopters from across the East Midlands.

We have offices at:

  • 2 - 6 Isabella Street, Nottingham, NG1 6AT
  • Trent Bridge House, West Bridgford, Nottingham, NG2 6BJ
  • The Council House, Corporation Street, Derby, DE1 2FS
  • County Hall, Smedley Street, Matlock, Derbyshire, DE4 3AG
