The Children Waiting for a Match

This document shows the demographics of the children who are currently live on LinkMaker waiting to be matched. The aim of sharing this information is so that workers are able to share this anonymized data with those enquiring about adoption, so they can have a realistic picture of the current needs of the children in Scotland.

The hope is that this will encourage prospective adopters to think more broadly about their matching criteria before they go forward with the adoption process.
