Coast to Coast is a new Regional Adoption Agency which has an ambitious go live date of October 2019. We have a huge journey ahead of us, and we hope you will work with us to develop our new service.
Coast to Coast partner organisations are Cumbria County Council, Durham County Council and Together for Children (Sunderland City Council). The new Regional Adoption Agency is being supported by a Voluntary Adoption Agency alliance which includes After Adoption, ARC Adoption North East, Barnardo’s, Caritas Care Adoption and DFW Adoption.
The Department for Education confirmed funding for the set-up of Coast to Coast in March this year. The bid was successful because of the the strong links and existing partnership arrangements across the three areas and the Voluntary Adoption Agency.
