Scotland’s Adoption Register is funded by the Scottish Government and is hosted by St Andrew’s Children’s Society.

You should therefore call Scotland’s Adoption Register on their telephone number listed as follows 0131 526 3240 to ask who is eligible to adopt if you are unsure whether you meet the necessary criteria. Furthermore, callers will be able to ask for the required assistance when completing the required online profile as a prospective adopter. However, in many cases, the online profile will be completed by a representative in a Scottish adoption agency rather than by hopeful parents.

Crucially, if you have forgotten the password and PIN provided to your work email address then you should call Scotland’s Adoption Register to go through the necessary security measures to reactivate your account. Alternatively, you may wish for assistance navigating the site, including how to both add and search for profiles if there has been a technical error.
