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, they can work with all groups of people affected by adoption.

Services include:
Families that Last: The Families that Last team assesses, approves and supports adopters from across the Midlands, Merseyside and North Wales, Greater Manchester, Cheshire, Lancashire and Yorkshire.

What makes Families that Last unique is the level of support they provide at every stage of your adoption journey. This includes supporting your new family for life, giving you access to a comprehensive package, including award-winning training, which you can tap into whenever you need it.

They match adopters with children who are waiting across the country, as well as with the children we are specifically family finding for through our child-specific route.

They specialise in matching adopters with children who wait longest; they can be older (three and above), sibling groups and children who may have some uncertainty around their health or development.

Once you’re matched with your child or children, they are still there. In fact, their mission as a charity is to support people at every stage of their adoption journey, and that includes supporting your new family for life.

SafeBase for Schools: Provides training to schools to provide practical strategies to support adopted pupils.
