Covid 19 - IAC’s message to those thinking about adoption

During this unprecedented time we are reaching out to those thinking about adoption and clarifying our current position at IAC. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic we have moved all our operations to remote working. Response times may therefore be slower than usual, whilst we deal with increased numbers of enquiries.

International adoption charity judged to be Outstanding by Ofsted for an incredible third time

IAC is delighted to share the news that the charity has again been judged to be outstanding by Ofsted. The charity, which operates as an international adoption agency was inspected at the end of January this year and is now one of a handful of adoption agencies to have achieved a hat trick of outstanding judgements. The charity was awarded an ‘outstanding’ by an Ofsted inspector for all three inspection judgements: the effectiveness of leaders and managers, how well children, young people and adults are helped and protected and the overall experiences and progress of service users.
