Adoption Matters is a voluntary adoption agency specialising in adoption and adoption support. We have been finding permanent, loving families for children since 1947.

We are the only voluntary adoption agency in the North West to have been rated ‘Outstanding’ by Ofsted for our last FOUR consecutive inspections in 2008, 2011 & 2014. We were also named Voluntary Adoption Agency of the Year by BAAF in 2012 & 2014.

We work with the widest range of potential adopters who have space in their homes and hearts for children of all ages, backgrounds and heritage including sibling groups and children with disabilities. We make a long term commitment to our families and aim to provide the best possible support throughout, from your initial enquiry to assessment through to placing children. We deliver a wide range of ongoing services, training and support, as well as social events and opportunities to meet other adopters.
