CoramBAAF members are at the heart of our work to improve outcomes for children and young people in care. Whether you are an experienced childcare practitioner, are just starting a career working with children, or have a professional or personal interest in adoption and fostering, CoramBAAF can provide vital knowledge, expertise and resources to inform and support your day-to-day work.

Our UK and international members include: social workers specialising in adoption, fostering and children's welfare; doctors, nurses, paediatricians and medical advisers; lawyers; counsellors, therapists and psychologists; trainers; academics and students; and adoptive parents and foster carers. But more than that, you will join an influential network of hundreds of agencies and organisations that shape and deliver childcare policy and practice.
