About Scottish Adoption

Scottish Adoption was established in 1923 with the aim of delivering a holistic range of high quality placement and adoption services.

Working in partnership with a range of key agencies and organisations, we are committed to delivering a child centred service and strive to build on our reputation as a best value provider in all aspects of service delivery.

Scottish Adoption has built a strong reputation for:

  • Being skilled in what we do – our team are all professionally qualified staff with specific experience in adoption.
  • Being innovative – we are continually researching and developing new approaches to meet the changing needs of our service users.
  • Looking after people every step of the way – our commitment is to support all our adopted children and families for however long and whenever this is needed.

We are a national organisation delivering adoption services in Scotland. At present the bulk of our services are delivered across Edinburgh & Lothians through Service Level Agreements with local authorities within the area, along with a range of inter-agency work with organisations in other parts of Scotland.

People using our services often comment on the caring and personal service they receive and our last Inspection Report by the Care Inspectorate said:

"We assessed that there was outstanding evidence of the adoption agency supporting positive outcomes for children and their adoptive families.."
