Investors in People Gold for After Adoption

Investors in People Gold for After Adoption


After Adoption, a voluntary adoption agency working throughout England and Wales to help all those affected by adoption, has been awarded the Investors in People (IIP) Gold standard award, recognising the organisation’s exceptional achievements in developing and supporting its workforce. 

During a rigorous assessment, After Adoption evidenced performance above and beyond the IIP Standard, achieving 128 areas and ensuring it met the Gold standard, an accolade only given to the top 7% of IIP accredited organisations across the UK.

The IIP Specialist described After Adoption as an ‘inspirationally led and people-centred’ organisation and was impressed with the ‘warmth, openness and supportive culture’ that the organisation creates and welcomes people into.

Lynn Charlton, CEO of After Adoption, commented:

"We’re delighted to have achieved Investors in People Gold. It recognises how much we value our staff and our ongoing commitment to continuous improvement.

"Our staff are central to the success of After Adoption and Investors in People provides the solid framework to ensure we put people at the heart of our organisation to achieve our vision."

Following the organisation’s success Steve Burrows, IIP North of England Managing Director said:

This shows After Adoption to be a company committed to being the best it can be and everyone should be extremely proud.”
