“Would you be interested in working as the Business Manager for an innovative therapeutic agency described as ‘flameballtastic’?”

Adoptionplus is a Therapeutic Adoption Agency with a reputation for innovation and effective practice, rated ‘Outstanding’ by OFSTED.  We specialise in supporting families caring for children who have experienced trauma and loss, and provide a range of specialist services for adults, children, families and professionals that include adoption placement, therapy and training.

Children have described our service as “flameballtastic” while OFSTED have described us as ‘one of the best in England….where children’s emotional wellbeing improves significantly.’
