Regional Adoption Agencies

IAC has always offered a service to professionals working within the field of adoption.  We offer a range of services, from Subscriber Services which provide access to the Advice Line and courses for prospective adopters, to a full Service Level Agreement where the agency undertakes the adopter assessment and support work with prospective adopters from enquiry through until placement and beyond.
