IAC has both intercountry and domestic adoption programmes. The intercountry adoption service is open to prospective adopters from a range of Local Authorities for whom IAC undertakes the approval process. The agency works with many countries and has a number of specialist programmes, including with India, The Philippines and China, the latter for special needs children.

The domestic programme specialises in the recruitment of adopters interested in ‘harder to place children’.  However due to the success of our domestic recruitment campaign the agency now has a strong and diverse pool of approved adopters waiting to be matched with harder to place children from the care system.  As a result IAC is not accepting enquiries from potential domestic adopters at the moment.  This is a temporary arrangement which will be kept under regular review and we will be posting an update on the IAC website in June 2016.

Intercountry adoption services remain unchanged and anyone interested should contact the Advice Line on 0208 447 4753 or info@icacentre.org.uk.
