These two maps show information from local authority (LA) adoption agencies and voluntary adoption agencies (VAAs) in England. The aim is to encourage potential adopters to come forward and register with an agency.
The maps show how many children were waiting to be adopted in each local authority at 30 September 2014 and other information about adoption agencies. You can adopt a child or children from anywhere in England and become approved by any adoption agency. This is the most up-to-date information on adoption in England.
This map shows the number of children waiting to be placed within each local authority adoption agency in England and other information. Click on the icons to find out more about your authority.
This map shows the number of voluntary adoption agencies (VAAs) operating in England. Click on the starred icons in your area to find out more about their adoption activity. Unstarred icons will appear when a starred icon is clicked – this shows regional offices of the VAA (if there are any). The data* is for the VAA as a whole, not for any particular office.
