Adoption agencies help people who want to adopt children. An agency will assess these people, to make sure they are suitable. They will help to prepare them to become good adoptive parents. Once approved, an adoption agency can then match these people with a child.
There are two types of adoption agencies. The first type is within a local authority. This type of adoption agency will have children in its care. This will include those who may be placed for adoption. The other type is a voluntary adoption agency. These are independent organisations.
