What we do

Our organisation was established to help a diverse range of families in England looking to begin their journey into adopting a child.

Our number one aim is to ensure that every potential adopter goes away with all the information and training they need to be the best possible adoptive parent for vulnerable children.


This consultation service provides more in-depth information on adoption and any queries you may have regarding the process.

Support Network

This consists of senior team members of MAF, as well as approved adopters, social workers, faith leaders and those from professional backgrounds, such as lawyers, who can provide legal jargon as and when needed.

Buddy Service

This consists of a potential adopter connecting with an existing approved adopter who will provide support and advice on adoption.

Adoption Webinars

Approved adopters as well as faith leaders are invited to give advice on adoption or answer any questions you may have prior to adopting.

Social Media

The MAF social media is also a form of support as it provides all the latest information and updates on Adoption.


MAF has provided training for over 500 social workers and continues to provide educational training resources to help individuals enhance their skills within the adoptive sector.
