Children Who Wait is Adoption UK's monthly family-finding magazine and online service. It is available to Adoption UK members who are prospective adopters and family-finding social workers and it is via this focused UK-wide readership that Children Who Wait assists in finding children in care a forever family.

Children Who Wait online offers an easy-to-use flexible and professional service which is both secure and private. Prospective adopters can enquire about children featured via an online enquiry form, which is submitted directly to the child's social worker/agency.

The key objectives of Children Who Wait are to:

  • Increase the number of placements of children in the UK waiting to be adopted.
  • Promote individual children and sibling groups in the UK waiting to be adopted in a comprehensive and positive manner.
  • Raise the profile of Children Who Wait'and Adoption UK's services, with the aim of increasing both the membership of Adoption UK and the readership of Children Who Wait. This, in turn, will increase the chances of families being found for hard-to-place children and enable Adoption UK to continue its work in ensuring families receive the support and encouragement they need to help make adoptions work.
