Welcome to Scottish Adoption.

Until October 2022 Scottish Adoption has made the decision to only accept applications from couples and individuals who are willing to consider adopting children who are in sibling groups or single older children.

If you think you can consider adopting siblings or a single older (school age) child we would really like to hear from you. For detailed information on the adoption process please download our Information for Prospective Adopters document and if after reading all the information you would like to contact us please download our Initial Enquiry Form.


At Scottish Adoption we focus exclusively on delivering high quality, innovative services to all affected by adoption in Scotland and further afield.


We have supported many families through their experiences of adoption and we have invited some of them to share their experiences with you.


From our library to information on social media and parenting support, we have a wide range of resources to support you.


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