Coram British Association for Adoption and Fostering (BAAF)

CoramBAAF is an independent membership organisation for professionals, foster carers and adopters, and anyone else working with or looking after children in or from care, or adults who have been affected by adoption. It is a successor organisation to the British Association for Adoption and Fostering (BAAF).

What we do

We have anĀ adoption agency and fostering service members across the UK from local authorities and the voluntary and independent sector. Other organisations that also work in the field, for example legal practices and children's organisations, benefit from associate membership.

We also have almost 900 individual members, including independent social workers, trainers, adopters, foster carers, therapists, lawyers, looked after children nurses, researchers and more. We work on behalf of our members and with the government and other stakeholders to ensure the very best outcomes for children in care.
