Diagrama Adoption is a Voluntary Adoption Agency, rated GOOD by Ofsted.

Diagrama Fostering and Adoption is an independent, not-for-profit adoption agency, dedicated to finding loving families who can offer a permanent home for children in need of adoption across South London, Kent, Sussex, and Surrey.

Our agency is small enough to offer a personalised and friendly adoption experience while benefitting from the expertise and security that comes with being part of a larger, established charitable foundation.

We have a good reputation as a progressive, caring and child-focused agency, providing excellent support for adopters and children alike. We put children at the heart of everything we do and every decision we make.

We welcome all adoption enquiries regardless of your age, faith, sexuality, ethnicity or whether you are single or a couple. Our focus is to recruit and support adopters who can meet the needs of the children who require adoption.

Diagrama Adoption focuses on finding adopters for those children who have been waiting the longest, this includes children who are part of a sibling group, children older than 4 years old and children who have addition emotional or physical needs.

We are proud to be part of a network of professional not-for-profit specialists, who provide consistent, high quality, expert support for adopters and adopted children.

Our history

Diagrama Adoption was set up to ensure adopters who had been working with Cabrini Children’s Society received continued support when the society ceased operation in 2014.

The service has since evolved and we have been busy integrating our own principles and approach to adoption to ensure that those we work with receive the highest possible standard of care, support and preparation throughout this life-changing journey.

We were delighted to be rated GOOD by Ofsted in 2018, following our first inspection.

Our main office moved from Russell Hill Road, Purley to Airport House in Croydon in 2016, where Diagrama’s fostering service is also based.

Diagrama Adoption is part of the Diagrama Foundation which has been registered as a charity in the UK since 2009, delivering a range of services which aim to support vulnerable children and adults. Our parent organisation, Fundacion Diagrama is one of the largest charities in Spain.
