Choosing an Agency

Report content

How did you all pick your Agency? What questions do you ask? What info did you gather? What did you base your decision on? I assumed we could only go with the local one so feeling a but daunted about picking an Agency and not sure where to start!


We are in North Wales so looking at North Wales LA, Barnados VA, Liverpool LA and Adoptionmatters VA (North West). Anyone got any experience of any of these specific Agencies?


Thanks Smile

Hi there. If you haven't done so I suggest you go their meetings for prospective adopters and see what you think of them. I would ask what sort of children they have to place at the moment (ages, single/sibling groups, ethnicity etc). I would also ask them what post adoption support they offer - approval and placement are the first steps, after that there are many more years. I am so grateful we picked the VA we did for the pre and post adoption support. Not in your area so can't help with the 4 you are looking at.

Good luck!
