Searching for answers about adoption?

Adoption touches the lives of one in four people in the UK. If your life is affected by adoption you may be searching for answers to particular questions. At After Adoption, we offer independent services to support individuals and families at any stage of the adoption journey, acknowledging that this is lifelong. 

We're celebrating LGBT Adoption and Fostering Week 2 - 8 March!

1 in 5 of our newly approved adopters this year identify as LGBT. Diverse children need diverse families. Can you give a child a loving home? Then get in touch.
