Service description:
We place children, who are currently in the care system, in stable families and we work with adopted children and adults, adoptive families and birth relatives. Our purpose is to improve the lives of the one in four people in the UK who have an adoption connection.

Through our adoption agency, 'Families that Last' we help to place children who have found it hard to find a home. We work with those children that are the most difficult to place, aiming to provide a caring and supportive family life for those children who may otherwise live out their lives in the care system.

We also provide individual, group and family work for people affected by adoption; those needing support building new families; those looking to rebuild past relationships by searching for relatives and those who have lost relatives to adoption. We work with adopted people to help them find their identity and trace their past.

We aim to promote a society where adoption is a way of today's family life. To do this we work in partnership with other agencies to develop adoption support services and innovative, ground-breaking projects, all of which recognise that adoption has a lifelong significance and plays an important role in today's society.
