Adoption Match is a national matching service working to match those children waiting to find permanent homes with those approved adopters waiting to be matched with children.

The team use a number of tools to facilitate their work including Adoption Exchange Days and Adoption Activity Days and have vast experience in the matching process.

Adoption Match manages the national statutory database of children and adopters, the Adoption Register for England, on behalf of the Department for Education.

All practitioners can search the Adoption Register for potential matches through a secure database, compliant with our ISO27001 accreditation. If you have not yet received your login details, please contact our team on 0345 222 9015 or mail@adoptionmatch.org.uk. Select the Professional button below for more information or use the login tab to access the Register.

Work is currently underway to enable direct access to all adopters. In the meantime, your practitioner can assist you with use of the Register and our team of Regional Business Partners can provide further advice. For help and information please contact us on 0345 222 9058 or mail@adoptionmatch.org.uk.
