About us

Adoption Match

A rounded matching service has a team of dedicated professionals committed to finding the best matches for children and adopters.

In addition, Adoption Match manages the only statutory matching service in the country, The Adoption Register for England on behalf of the Department for Education.

Adoption Match has two main features:

  • The dedicated and experienced team working with practitioners and adopters to find the best possible matches for children and families. This work involves close liaison with practitioners to ensure children and families are given the best opportunity to be successfully matched. This includes reviewing profiles and hosting Adoption Exchange Days and Adoption Activity Days.
  • Managing┬áthe Adoption Register for England on behalf of the Department for Education. This is the only statutory online database that stores the details of children waiting to be adopted where their own agency has not found the right adoptive family to match them. Similarly the database holds the details of approved adopters who are waiting to be matched with the right child for them
