Eligibility criteria:

  • Applicants can be single, married, in a civil partnership or be an unmarried couple (same or opposite sex)
  • There is no upper age limit.

  • Anyone wishing to adopt a child to whom they are related should contact the Greffe in the first instance.
  • Applicant(s) must be domiciled or habitually resident in Guernsey
  • Applicant(s) must not have any declared specified offences against children or convictions which might indicate unsuitability to work with children or vulnerable adults (formal checks are then made if the agency accepts an application)

For those who meet the criteria a home visit is arranged and further information is collected.
