Fostering and adoption

Action for Children has been finding stable and loving homes for children for over 150 years. We offer our foster carers and adopters high levels of training and support, and a friendly and personal touch.

As a charity, we care about children, not shareholders.

Why foster with us?

Are you passionate about making a difference for children, and have energy and space in your life? We’d love you to join our team and become a foster carer with us.

Why adopt with us?

We were one of the UK’s first approved adoption agencies. We’re looking for loving, supportive, determined people to offer permanent, loving homes to children.

In order to reduce the spread of Covid-19, we are limiting all non-essential face-to-face contact. This means your enquiry might progress a little slower than we’d normally like. We will do our best to support you and give you a call to make sure you have all you need.
