Future Plans

Coram remains committed to finding families for those harder to place children. Therefore, Coram is launching a new service, to aid local authorities, regional adoption agencies and voluntary adoption agencies in maximising placements for our most vulnerable children.
Coram will continue to provide a matching service and will be holding Exchange Days and Activity Days.

Action for Adopters

In order to optimise matching opportunity, Coram would request that you consent to holding your data. This will enable us to invite you to any new exchange days and activity days and that your profile will still be available to be viewed by adoption agencies across the country. Please click below to complete the consent form.

You are also able to register with LinkMaker if your agency subscribes to the service.

Action for Agencies

To ensure that those children waiting are afforded the very best opportunity, it is vital that Local Authorities and Voluntary Adoption Agencies across the country opt in to all available services. In order to optimise the outcomes for children and families waiting, Coram’s database needs to hold the real time information of children and families waiting. As such, Coram is asking that agencies provide their up to date data on waiting children and families to this new system. Please click below to complete the consent form.
