We are happy to make all of the online and offline resources mentioned in this section available to anyone connected with Scottish Adoption.

Lending Library

We have a library in the office which has a wide range of books, articles and materials covering all the areas of our adoption placement and support work.

Facebook Privacy

There is a lot to know about how to be safe and secure on social media websites such as facebook and twitter. We have put together a guide on how to control your privacy settings on facebook to help you choose the correct settings for you and this can be downloaded here.

Parenting Support

Scottish Adoption is a partner agency of Parenting Across Scotland – providing general information and support for parents, families and practitioners in Scotland.  Lots of really helpful information about parenting can be found on their website by clicking here.



We are recording podcasts talking about all things adoption. You can listen to these podcasts live or download to listen to them later.

The Teenage Brain

The Teenage Brain

We are sharing this podcast from Brian Cox and Robin Ince who are joined by impressionist Rory Bremner, Professor Sarah-Jayne Blakemore and Professor Matthew Cobb to look at the working of the teenage brain, and why teenagers are so, well, teenagery. Listen here.

We’d like to include some book reviews on this section of the website, so if you’ve read anything recently which has been helpful to you and you think others would find helpful, do send us a brief book review and we’ll be happy to post it on the website.
