Adoption Matters is a children’s charity and one of the largest voluntary adoption agencies in the UK placing over 4,300 children in our history.

We recruit, train and support adoptive families and offer ongoing support and training for life. We are the ONLY adoption agency in the North of England to be rated ‘Outstanding’ by Ofsted, four times in a row. We have offices in Chester (Head office), Warrington, Salford, Hale, Blackburn, Leeds, Durham and Stoke and our services cover the whole of the North of England, parts of Wales, Yorkshire, Stoke, Staffordshire and Shropshire.

Adoption and adoption support is all we do and have been doing since 1947. We have a team of experienced adoption practitioners whose aim and focus is you, our adopters and the children we place with you. We ensure we find the right adopter for the right child/ren.
