who we help...

Rated ‘Good’ by Ofsted, our main focus is on placing vulnerable children with new families through our Adoption Connections service. But we don’t stop there.

Birth relatives who have lost a child to adoption may be able to access our renowned Birth Connections service, which provides specialist support, advice and counselling.

And our Building Connections service is there to help adopted adults and birth families to trace their family members, whilst offering the vital support and counselling this often difficult journey requires.

SFCS truly offers a ‘cradle to grave’ service to anyone whose life has been touched by adoption.
