Creating happily ever afters for children in care 

Adopters for Adoption is a national voluntary adoption agency (VAA) that was founded in 2014 and set up by people with first-hand experience of adoption to improve the way adopters are recruited, prepared, assessed and supported. Since then, we have been working closely with local authorities across the UK to provide our adopters with opportunities to adopt children. Today, our team continues working towards this vision by putting both children waiting for adoption and prospective adopters at the centre of our thinking.

As an agency, we strive to create loving, stable and well-supported families that thrive, through creating a positive experience for adopters in which we prepare, train and support them in a welcoming environment. We are an inclusive adoption agency that encourages diversity and understands the need for an individualised approach for each of our adopters.

At our last Ofsted inspection in 2021, we were rated ‘Good’ and have consistently been rated ‘Good’ since our inception in 2014. Our senior members of staff all have extensive experience in adoption and are passionate about improving adoption services for adopters and children. All staff receive regular reviews and have access to further training and resources to keep up to date with the latest in adoption news.

Here for you every step of the way

When you adopt through Adopters for Adoption, you will have the support of your dedicated social worker as well as from the wider team right from your initial contact with us, through the adoption process and long after your child has moved in. We understand that parenting has its challenges which is why we will always be available to you, whenever you need us.

Adopters for Adoption is also a part of the Polaris Community, one of the largest providers of children’s services in the UK. This gives us access to a wide range of resources and professionals that allows us to continually improve the service we offer to our adopters.

Many potential adopters rule themselves out before even applying so we would encourage you to have an informal chat with our friendly team if you are thinking about adoption. We welcome applications from a wide range of people and seek to challenge the myths and misconceptions surrounding adoption.
