After Adoption

After Adoption is an independent adoption agency working throughout England and Wales to help all those affected by adoption. From placing children with adoptive parents to supporting birth families and reuniting families separated through adoption, we can work with all groups of people affected by adoption.

Over the past twenty years, we have pioneered work with birth mothers in prison, search and reunion services and work with adopted young people.

Adoption has a huge impact on both individuals, their families and the society we live in. Done well, it can transform the lives of children in the care system and give them the opportunity to reach their full potential as adults.
