As we move forward we are expanding our service by opening up access of the Adoption Register for England database to adopters and social workers who will be able to directly search for matches.
We are now piloting this with 28 agencies – a mix of local authority and voluntary adoption agencies. This will continue over the next few months.
Newly approved adopters included in the pilot will be able to register themselves using this system, or if they are already registered they will be given accounts. Adopters will be able to search the system and make potential matches with children waiting. Social workers will be able to add children and adopters to the Adoption Register for England and search for potential matches.
If your agency is not included in the pilot, our referral process will remain the same.
Adopters not included in the pilot can still self-refer by completing our AD02 form and posting it to us:
