CVAA is a membership organisation for voluntary adoption agencies. We work to ensure our member agencies are enabled to deliver services of excellence to children, adoptive families, and all those considering adoption, or who have been affected by it. Our members provide specialist, high quality adoption services to children and families across the United Kingdom.
