Adoptionplus's partnership with Barnardo's

Aug 13th 2018

Adoptionplus is pleased to announce our exciting new business partnership with the well respected children's charity, Barnardo's. Our Barnardo's Adoption Partnership will allow us access to more resources; giving us better opportunities to improve children's lives.

Joanne Alper, Director of Services at Adoptionplus:

“Adoptionplus is delighted to join together with Barnardo’s. As an Ofsted-rated ‘outstanding’ adoption agency, Adoptionplus has always been passionate about improving the lives of children and those who care for them.

“Our vision has led us to focus on effective service development, research, innovation and training in the fields of adoption and adoption support. As a small voluntary adoption agency, our capacity and reach has been limited. By joining with Barnardo’s, Adoptionplus will have the opportunity to contribute positively to the lives of many more children around the UK.”

Javed Khan, Barnardo’s Chief Executive:

‘I am pleased to announce that we are strengthening and expanding Barnardo’s Family Placement services by forming a business partnership with Adoptionplus.

Adoptionplus is an Ofsted rated ‘Outstanding’ adoption agency that provides specialist placements and therapeutic support for the most vulnerable children and young people. They are based in the Buckinghamshire and already work in partnership with Barnardo’s in London and East Anglia.

This partnership is a natural step forward for both Barnardo’s and Adoptionplus. By combining the national reach of Barnardo’s Family Placement teams with Adoptionplus’ specialist expertise, we will strengthen adoption services and find even more children and young people loving families.

Together, Adoptionplus and Barnardo’s Family Placement will create services with greater breadth and reach to help many more children achieve better outcomes through strong and tailored support. Service users and commissioners of both organisations will continue to enjoy the outstanding service they currently experience.

For the last two decades Barnardo’s has focused on finding loving, secure families for the most vulnerable children. By combining our existing expertise with the innovative, specialist services established by Adoptionplus, we will continue to offer the best possible support for children and people who would like to adopt.'

We’re so proud to be a Barnardos adoption partner, and look forward to the opportunities this will bring; making a difference to the lives of children and families that need it most.
