The Adoption Service provides a service to enquirers, applicants, approved adopters and supports placements pre-order and post order. The agency uses innovative ways of family finding and is  open to different approaches to speed up the placement of children with families who can meet their needs. Preparation of adoptive families is viewed as good and Northamptonshire offers an impressive range of training both before and after approval. Once an appropriate family is found, placements are stable and secure, which leads to positive outcomes for children. On-going support is provided pre and post adoption by dedicated, committed, enthusiastic and hard working staff. Northamptonshire also provides services for adopted adults.
