About us

CoramBAAF Adoption & Fostering Academy is the leading membership organisation dedicated to improving outcomes for children and young people in care by supporting the agencies and professionals who work with them.

We focus on supporting and developing all areas of permanency in the UK -adoption, fostering, kinship care as well as returning children to their parents – and the legal orders that frame these.

CoramBAAF provides and develops the infra-structure of family placement services such as forms and practice guidance, disseminates research, shares best practice and offers publications, training and support to agencies and professionals to develop their skills and knowledge. This includes social workers, those working in health, the law and other related areas of activity. We also offer resources for those caring for children.

CoramBAAF is part of the Coram Group of charities which has been advancing the welfare, education and rights of children in the UK for over 275 years.
