Coram runs one of the UK's most successful independent adoption services with some of the best success rates in the country.
We have been helping children find new parents for more than 40 years and support families throughout the adoption process and afterwards - for as long as they need us.
Coram also runs an innovative Concurrent Planning scheme where babies in care are found foster carers who are ready and willing to adopt them if the courts decide they cannot live with their birth family.
We have a dedicated adoption site for adoptive families and people interested in adopting with Coram, including adopting a baby through Concurrent Planning. Visit it to find out about adoption and view our Ofsted reports.
Where we work
We have UK adoption teams in Central London, South London, North London, the East Midlands and Cambridgeshire. Our expertise means we have also developed successful adoption partnerships with many local authorities.
Life-long adoption support
We offer all our families advice and support throughout the adoption process. Our wide range of after adoption support, includes access to music and art therapy, referrals to specialist local services, support groups for adopted children and parenting skills groups to help build strong family relationships throughout childhood and adolescence.
For adoption professionals
Coram works with local authorities across the UK to help improve adoption services, from managing services for looked after children to analysing delay and drift in adoption journeys.
In addition, CoramBAAF Adoption & Fostering Academy runs training courses, seminars and conferences on all aspects of adoption for social work managers and child care professionals.
