Why join us as an Agency Member?

Our UK teams, lead by experienced adopters, work in partnership with local authority and voluntary agencies
across three distinct areas: adopter recruitment and preparation; delivery of innovative family support services;
and provision of professional support and development opportunities.

Agency Membership benefits are designed for social workers in all your adoption, family support and child protection teams. Share the details with colleagues today!

Support for your families Support for your teams
Adoption UK is a reassuring presence and trusted community for prospective adopters and adoptive families. Agency Membership helps you recruit adopters and provides discounted access to our support services for all your families. Plus it enables your agency to enjoy preferential rates on support products and services you
commission directly from us.
Working in children's services can be challenging and demanding. Our Agency Membership package places equal emphasis on supporting all social workers in contact with adoptive families, through regular information, discounted training and opportunities to connect with others. Plus, outside of work, your teams and their families can access all the rewards of our new Advantage scheme.
