Link Maker provides adoption features for both local authorities and potential adopters, increasing placement choice for children awaiting adoption and creating a UK-wide pool of available adopters.
Link Maker’s commissioning features makes needs-led placements easier to find, and give the opportunity for all authorities to use a common, national platform, improving data regionally and nationally.
While Link Maker is used by nearly every local authority in the UK for adoptive matching, over one-third of authorities across England are preparing to pilot a new platform for commissioning, fostering and residential placements.
