our history

In 2017, Adoption Matters celebrated their 70th anniversary and the amazing achievement of placing over 5,000 children with their forever families and supporting many thousands more.  Throughout the year, we held celebratory events in Chester & Blackburn.

Today in 2020, we have continued to place more children and support more families than ever before and are proud to be the only voluntary adoption agency in the North of England to be rated Outstanding 4 times in a row.  We expanded into the North East region in 2019 and are excited to work with more Regional Adoption Agencies, Local Authorities and partners over the coming years.
