Subscription Services

IAC is very aware that Intercountry Adoption is a specialised and complex area of work, requiring knowledge not only of adoption and immigration legislation in the UK, but also of countries overseas. Many Local Authorities and now emergent Regional Adoption Agencies choose to subscribe to IAC to access services for their prospective and established adopters such as the Preparation courses and Adoption Support Workshops, or because they wish to access specialist training and consultation for themselves and their teams. Many recognise that subscription to IAC adds value to the services they offer their intercountry adopters and that it is also valuable in helping their agency to meet inspection standards. Over 51 subscribers rely on IAC to provide the specialist information and advice they need to support their intercountry adoption work.
