our history

In 2017, Adoption Matters celebrate our 70th anniversary and the amazing achievement of placing over 4,000 children with their forever families and supporting many thousands more.

Throughout the year we will hold celebratory events in Chester & Blackburn and we hope that some of the 4,000 plus adoptive families, adoptees and even birth families we have supported over the years will be able to join us.  Read more below all about our history.  Also available to download is our Adoption Matters History Leaflet
