The Adoption Register for England is a national statutory database managed by Adoption Match on behalf of the Department for Education. The Register stores the details of children waiting to be adopted and details of approved adopters waiting to be matched with a child. Practitioners and adopters can search the database for potential matches. The database is secure and compliant with ISO27001 accreditation. The Adoption Register has been operating since 2001.
The Adoption Match team also carries out a more intensive search process considering all approved adopters with dedicated Regional Business Partners, working closely with adoption agencies.
