St Margaret's Children and Family Care Society

St Margaret’s Children and Family Care Society is a registered Charity and Voluntary Adoption Agency in Scotland. The organisation was initially founded in 1955, meaning that we have almost 60 years’ experience of providing high quality adoption services for children and their families.

We strongly believe that every child has the right to grow up in a safe, loving and secure family environment.

St Margaret's Children and Family Care Society

Unfortunately, for some children this cannot be provided within their birth family. Our primary role at St Margarets is to recruit Prospective Adopters for children who are no longer able to live within their birth family.

Adoption is a very rewarding but also life-changing decision, for yourself, for the children and also for your wider family.

St Margaret's Children and Family Care Society

We are committed to delivering a high quality and personalised service to take you through each and every step of your adoption journey.

We provide many services in relation to adoption, including the services for those interested in adoption, on-going support and training for adoptive families, as well as services for adopted adults and services for birth parents. We understand that you will have many questions.

St Margaret's Children and Family Care Society

Whether you are thinking of adoption, have already adopted or have been adopted yourself, we hope that you will find some helpful information on our website.

Should you have any further questions in relation to adoption please feel free to contact one of Social Workers who will be happy to have an informal discussion or answer any questions you may have.
