Post adoption and care service
Post Adoption & Care Service is an 'Access to Records' only Service. This involves sharing records with those who were either adopted or in the care of The Children’s Society.
The service was established in 1993 and has approximately 130,000 listed adoption and care records however a small fraction of these have been destroyed. Most records have been transferred to microfilm and the first 30.000 are held at The Children's Society Records and Archive Centre. The post adoption and care service also responds to enquiries from relatives of child migrants.
Post adoption and care is a registered adoption support agency and is regulated by Ofsted.
