You will require this accreditation if you intend to provide non-government
domestic or international adoption services.
Adoption services include:
the suitability of a person or persons for the adoption of a child
decisions about who may adopt a child
- making arraignments for the transfer of
a child to their adoptive family.
charitable or not-for-profit agencies may apply for this accreditation.
accreditation will help your agency improve its quality of care for children
and maintain the current standards of good practice. Accreditation will also help
your agency recognise any need for change or
improvement to your services. Your application must include detailed outlines of
your agency?s structure, the
programs you offer and any funding agreements you are a part of.
You may be
granted full or provisional accreditation. Provisional accreditation will
involve an indirect assessment of your adoption practices and procedures. Full accreditation may be granted when you begin providing adoption
services and after an evidence based review of your adoption practices and procedures.
Please consult the Contact Officer for more information.
