Using the VAA search facility

When you enter your postcode below details of Voluntary Adoption Agencies which cover your area will be listed. This may include a mixture of national and local VAAs. The national VAAs contact details may be their Head Office address, but they are likely to have other offices based around the country.

Please make enquiries with as many agencies covering your area as you wish. You may find it helpful to visit the agencies websites using the link provided before making contact by email or phone.

When contacting agencies it is important to confirm that they actively provide a service in your locality. You may wish to seek confirmation at the initial enquiry stage that the agency recruits, assesses and supports adoptive families in your area.
