What people say about IAC

In 2014 IAC was judged to be an outstanding adoption agency by Ofsted.


In 2014 Ofsted reported...

“The Intercountry Adoption Centre is unique in its operation in this country. It is also a leader in the field of overseas adoption practice internationally. It is operating at an outstanding level and maintains itself at the vanguard of adoption practice, particularly with regard to placing children from overseas with disabilities and/or complex emotional needs, with highly trained, and very well prepared and strongly supported adoptive families.”
“Adopters report a very high level of satisfaction regarding the support they receive from the agency. This support is easily accessible and described by adopters as ‘perfect, they will go the extra distance to do things that they do not have to do, to help.”
“At the heart of the service is the quality of care provided to children from overseas and now domestically. This is a formidable and a major and positive strength of this service. Prospective adopters are prepared, assessed, trained and supervised to an extremely high level. The service attracts a broad range of adoptive parents who are specifically able to meet the special needs of some children and young people, for whom permanence in this country and abroad, may be more difficult.”

“We adopted our beautiful daughter from Pakistan with the help of Intercountry Adoption Centre.The staff are very friendly and helpful and the organisation is efficient and professional. We were assisted throughout the whole procedure and especially whilst we were out in Pakistan.” Mr and Mrs U
"We found IAC to be a great help during the days of navigating our way through our Inter Country Adoption journey. Their beginners workshops were particularly informative for us and our parents. During the rough days their support, be it on the ground or from the offices in the UK kept us a bit more well informed while waiting for completion dates on legal matters in India. We find their family days very helpful and relaxed events, it's always lovely to meet other adopters at different stages of the process and exchange experiences. We have stayed in touch with IAC and we have no doubt that later on down the line they will be a great source of support for our little one on her journey too." - Mrs KB, Hertfordshire.
