Family Care Adoption Services is a registered charity, which works with some of the most vulnerable children and their families in Northern Ireland.

The needs of adopted children, who often have had a challenging start in life, can be complex, and the work does not end when a child is placed with their permanent family.

FCAS continues to provide post adoption services, for as long as it is needed. This type of support generally doesn’t attract public funding so we rely on your donations to be able to continue this important aspect of our work.
