Features of our

Individual Membership

Individual membership is offered to all professionals working to improve the lives of looked after and adopted children, including social work, legal, health and research professionals.

The main benefits for individual members are:

  • Attendance at any one of our member-only forums for social work, health and legal professionals in Scotland, with meetings offered at least three times a year;
  • Access to our Scotland-specific helpline providing expert specialist advice on legal, health and child placement dilemmas; this includes enquiries about cross-border and inter-country adoptions and fostering;
  • Receive discounts at all AFA Scotland training events. We provide many continuous professional development opportunities for social workers and related professionals. Specialist workshops, conferences and spotlight sessions are held throughout the year, often with highly regarded external speakers.

AFA Scotland is registered as a Scottish Charitable Incorporated Organisation (SCIO) - SC046417
