Adoption UK in Scotland operates from our office base in Edinburgh, providing information, support and advice to those parenting children who are no longer able to live with their birth families, across Scotland. Our services are provided through our helpline, online support systems, training workshops and support groups.
We work closely with voluntary adoption agencies and local authorities across Scotland. If you are based in Scotland and are interested in adopting a child please contact us for information and advice about the routes to adoption in your area.

FASD Hub Scotland provides a tiered support service for all parents and carers of children and young people who have been affected - or may have been - by prenatal alcohol exposure (PAE). This prenatal exposure to alcohol can lead to a condition called fetal alcohol spectrum disorder (FASD). We also provide support and training to professionals (education, social work), other charities and third sector organisations working to support these families.
The 2020 Adoption Barometer provides a comprehensive stock-take of the adoption landscape across the UK.
The service is funded by the Scottish Government and managed by Adoption UK Scotland.
