Who we are – Family Care Adoption Services is the largest Specialist Adoption Agency in Northern Ireland, with offices in Belfast and in Derry. We have been working throughout Northern Ireland for over 40 years, placing children across the Province with their new families.


Whilst the agency continues to place children for adoption from within Northern Ireland, we have more recently become part of the Consortium of Voluntary Adoption Agencies (CVAA), whose members provide specialist adoption services to children and families across the U.K.


What we do – Family Care Adoption Services strives to recruit more adopters each year through a professional, timely and supportive service. Our social workers will help and guide you through the process which is, on average, 8 months from enquiry to approval. We offer specialist in-house adoption preparation and training.


We at Family Care Adoption Services offer a lifelong support service to adoptive families as we recognize both the challenges and rewards in adoption. We offer a supportive and non-judgmental service to adoptive parents, and to adopted young people and children. Any request will be viewed as strength, not as a weakness.


How can you help? As an agency we are excited to be able to place children with families who can offer them the love and care they deserve.  We presently need more families and would be delighted to hear from you to tell you more about the adoption process.
