For adoptive parents, prospective adopters, Special Guardians, long-term foster carers and practitioners working with children who are adopted or in care, Family Membership gives you the support and legal advice you need, lots of opportunities to connect with people who understand your family, and ways to help influence the decisions that affect the lives of adoptive families everywhere.

Join us today - we'll be with you every step of your adoption journey.

From discounts on training to a legal helpline; a members' magazine to lifestyle offers for treating the family - members can access a range of support services and benefits that enable you to develop your knowledge, gain confidence and enjoy family life. Our local membership groups and family days provide you with opportunities to meet other families - to socialise, share experiences and to support each other. And our vibrant online community enables you to share parenting advice and discuss the issues that matter to you, 24/7. Be at the heart of everything we do to influence policy in the areas that matter most to your family. Add your voice to ours: share your stories, be the first to contribute to research and get active on social media to strengthen our campaigning on behalf of adoptive families.
