Our Office

Adoptioncentrum's office is located in Stockholm and has around 25 employees, processing adoption cases, working with development cooperation and providing service to members.

Those responsible for contacts with different countries are all highly skilled with experience of working abroad, and good linguistic ability – some ten different languages are spoken at the office. Our social workers have long experience in their profession and of family contacts – our member families should be able to rely on expert advice and good support throughout the adoption process.

The office is led by the director of the association Kerstin Gedung.
