Adoption Matters is a children’s charity and voluntary adoption agency established in 1947.

We recruit, train and prepare families seeking to adopt and offer them ongoing support and development throughout the adoption process and for as long as they need it.  We have also been providing a support and guidance service for adopted children, adults and birth families for over 70 years. We cover the whole of the North of England, North Wales, Stoke, Stafford and Shropshire.

Our Centre for Adoption Support (CfAS) is an innovative service delivering a broad menu of training, workshops and therapeutic interventions to families, local authorities and education professionals. This approach ensures that adoption and permanency placements are fully supported across home and educational settings. The experienced multi-disciplinary team at the Centre works closely with families and professionals to equip them with the necessary knowledge, understanding and strategies needed to support their children throughout the different stages along their adoption journey.

Our Concurrent Planning Service combines elements of fostering and adoption to offer babies and very young children the best possible start by reducing the number of moves between foster care and adoption. The Service places children on behalf of all the Regional Adoption Agencies in the North West, and is the largest of its kind in the country.
