Adoption Register for England and Wales has been operated by the British Association for Adoption and Fostering (BAAF) on behalf of the Department for Education and the Welsh Government since December 1st 2004.
The Adoption Register works with adoption agencies and adoption consortia to make sure that all children and families have the best chance of finding a suitable match. Its main purpose is to find adoptive homes for those children for whom Local Authorities cannot find a home locally.
