British Association for Adoption & Fostering (BAAF)
The UK’s leading adoption and fostering membership association, which promotes the highest standards of practice in adoption, fostering and childcare services in social work, health, legal and other professional bodies on behalf of children separated from their birth families.
Set up in 1974 by a group of foster carers and social workers who recognised the importance of working together to improve the lives of children in care, The Fostering Network provides a vital support service and campaigning voice on behalf of foster care.
Nationwide Association of Fostering Providers (NAFP)
NAFP is the only UK trade association that campaigns solely for independent and voluntary sector fostering providers (IFPs). Every year, IFPs care for more children and their foster carers make a special contribution to the lives of children.
