About CVAA Subscription

CVAA was established as a membership organisation for voluntary adoption agencies in 1992. We recognise that other agencies who share an interest in adoption may wish to join CVAA and this can be done by an annual subscription. Regional Adoption Agencies, Welsh Regional Collaboratives, Adoption Support Agencies, and other charities or businesses that support permanence for children through their work are all eligible for CVAA subscription.
