The Triangle Project trains, prepares, assesses and approves early permanence carers for vulnerable children. If you're interested in exploring a different route to adoption, you're in the right place.

We offer early permanence placements, where children are placed with approved adopters who have also been approved as foster carers.

Download our Statement of Purpose.

The Triangle Project operates as a specialist fostering agency. We work with potential parents, helping them to become dual-approved as both:


foster carers, approved through the Triangle Project fostering agency and


adopters, approved through either Adoption Focus or St. Francis’ Children’s Society (SFCS), depending on the adopter’s geographical location.


Most existing early permanence schemes are used to place very young children – often babies straight from hospital. We hope to use our early permanence service to also find families for older children, sibling groups and other children who are sadly deemed ‘harder to place’.

The Triangle Project is a partnership between two successful and experienced adoption agencies, Adoption Focus and SFCS. We hope that by combining our knowledge and expertise, we can offer even better outcomes for vulnerable children and their new families.

Both agencies provide permanent and positive family life experience for children in need of adoptive homes - from preparation to support of adoptive family life through the years ahead. We have specialist social workers with extensive experience in training and supporting people who want to become adoptive parents. 

Adoption Focus has offices in Birmingham, Staffordshire and Oxfordshire and offers adoption services to people living in a 50 mile radius of these locations.

SFCS is based in Milton Keynes and covers Buckinghamshire, Bedfordshire, Northamptonshire, Hertfordshire and parts of Cambridgeshire and East Anglia.

The Triangle Project is registered with Ofsted and has been funded by the Department for Education’s Practice and Improvement Fund for Adoption Services.
