Support for Adoptees

Coram IAC has an extensive history in working with adoptees in the UK and further afield. As the UK’s only international adoption agency, we are working towards being able to offer services to anyone in the UK who was adopted internationally.

If you are an adult adoptee seeking support, we ask that in the first instance you contact our Information & Advice Service. Our expert team will be able to offer advice and signposting. Find out how to Contact Us here.

Adopted Children and Young People

Since 2009, Coram IAC has been responsible for placing children with our approved adoptive families directly. Many of these children are now young adults. We place children from all over the world.

We know that it is really important for anyone who has been adopted to understand why, and we support our Coram IAC adopters to share information with their children. We also run support groups and events for children and young people so that you can meet other people who were also adopted and learn more about what it means to be an adoptee.

The best way to learn about our services is to ask your parents who will be sent information regularly but you can also email us directly or contact us on Coram's Social Media. The links are at the top of our homepage.

If you are worried about something or someone is behaving in a way that makes you feel uncomfortable you can also ring Childline on 0800 1111. The call is free and confidential.
