St Andrew’s Children’s Society
St Andrew’s Children’s Society provides the support to allow children who cannot live with their birth families to be brought up in a loving and secure family environment.
St Margaret’s Children and Family Care Society
At St Margaret’s we believe that all children should have the right to a happy and stable family life, no matter what kind of start they have had in life. Our primary concern is to provide a family for a child
At Scottish Adoption we focus exclusively on delivering high quality, innovative services to all affected by adoption in Scotland and further afield. We are driven by the key principle that all children should be supported to grow up in safe, loving, caring and nurturing families and that everyone affected by adoption should be able to access a comprehensive and holistic range of adoption support services.
Reece’s Rainbow is a global down syndrom adoption organisation, whose demand exceeds supply. They work to rescue orphans with Down syndrome through the gift of adoption, to raise awareness for all of the children who are waiting in 25 countries around the world, and to raise funds as adoption grants that help adoptive families afford the cost of adopting these beautiful children.
National Down Syndrome Adoption Network
The National Down Syndrome Adoption Network provides information to birth families who may be seeking alternatives to parenting as they prepare for the arrival of their child. Making an adoption plan for a child with Down syndrome is a loving choice and can be the right choice for some families.
