Working together for local children

This model of joint working between an independent adoption agency, such as Coram, and a local authority is a new venture. It builds on Coram’s experience of working closely with several other local authorities and its strong track record as Adopt Anglia supporting adopters in the region for many decades. It also demonstrates how, by partnering with a leading adoption agency, Cambridgeshire County Council is committed to securing the best service for local children.

Building on an established relationship

Prior to Coram Cambridgeshire Adoption being established in 2014, Coram was commissioned by Cambridgeshire County Council in 2011 to help manage its adoption service in response to the Government’s call for local authorities to improve the ways in which vulnerable children are found homes.
