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.
