As well as the factsheets below, you can also find information about the support and services Adoption UK offers at the link below:

AUK support for adopters


Adoption leave and pay

All employed adopters are entitled to adoption leave. Many will be entitled to adoption pay. There’s no qualifying period of employment for adoption leave, but your entitlement to adoption pay depends on your length of employment and earnings.
