Adoption Focus specialises in adoption and we will give you all the help and support you need on your journey into parenthood and beyond.

We are a dedicated and experienced adoption agency, rated as ‘Outstanding’ by Ofsted on each occasion we have been inspected - most recently in 2018.  We recruit, prepare, assess and approve prospective adopters. As soon as they are approved, we work with Local Authorities from across the country to place children with them.

At Adoption Focus, we believe all children should have a loving and stable family home. We work with individuals, couples, and families from all kinds of backgrounds to achieve this for children who need to be adopted.

The children who need new families are as varied as the adopters who want to care for them.  Adoption Focus has found new families for sibling groups, white, black, Asian and minority ethnic children, children with disabilities and children aged four years and over, as well as very young children.

Adoption Focus has a friendly, experienced and highly committed adoption team based in offices in Birmingham, Staffordshire and Oxfordshire. If you live within 50 miles of any of our locations and are considering adoption, contact us and get your questions answered by the experts.



Our vision

Our vision is to provide every child who needs a new family, with adopters who want to parent them with care, love and understanding.

At Adoption Focus, we believe that:

  • every child should enjoy their childhood
  • for children who cannot stay with their birth family, well-informed and properly supported adoptive families provide the best opportunity for them to have the childhood they need
  • every person who wants to adopt should be provided with a highly professional, knowledgeable and expert service
  • adopters make the difference to children's lives and should be properly acknowledged for this
  • our adoptive families should enjoy family life - we will do all we can to support them in their parenting for as long as they need us, as their children grow into adulthood


We value loving, nurturing family life which keeps children safe from harm.

We place the welfare of children at the heart of our service provision.

We are committed to the professionalism and development of our staff, enabling our team to achieve the best they can for the children and adopters we support.

We seek to empower everyone to whom we provide a service, working in collaboration, in an open and honest manner, to help them achieve their full potential.

This is reflected in the work that we do and is why we are rated by Ofsted as an ‘Outstanding’ adoption agency.
