ALS Volunteers information

We offer volunteer opportunities to those wishing to adopt children with Adopt London South (ALS).  We understand you may not have worked with children outside of your own families and will support and encourage you whilst with us, helping you to gain an understanding of the types of children you may see on the profiles of children waiting for adoption or foster placements.

I myself have two adopted children and have talked at ALS events about the benefits of adopting children. The young people we work with here often have experiences of trauma and some have "invisible differences" such as ADHD, Autism etc. 


Those looking for experience of working with primary aged children are welcome to fill in our form below and we will let you know of any opportunities that are available. 

Have a look around our website and read the further information on this page to get a feel of what we offer and if that doesn't scare you then fill in the form!
