New 5-Year Lease For After Adoption

A leading independent adoption agency has signed a new five-year lease on 3,440 square ft of space at the Duchy of Lancaster’s New Oxford House in Birmingham.

After Adoption originally took up office space on the first floor of New Oxford House in 2013, expanding into additional space on the fifth floor a year later. The new lease allows the organisation to combine its office and meeting rooms on the same floor, improving efficiency and providing sufficient room for further growth.

Commenting on the move, Duchy Head of Urban Mike Andrews said: “We are delighted to have been able to accommodate After Adoption in a bigger single space. By taking on the whole of the first floor, the organisation will now have access to multi-functional rooms, providing much greater flexibility and efficiency.

“New Oxford House is an attractive Art Deco building in a prime location right in the heart of Birmingham’s business district. We are currently refurbishing it floor by floor to provide prestige office suites for growing businesses and with its exceptional communication and transport links to the rest of the country we expect these to prove very popular.”

After Adoption works throughout England and Wales to help all those affected by adoption, from placing children with adoptive parents to supporting birth families and reuniting families. Over the past twenty years, it has pioneered work with birth mothers in prison, search and reunion services and new initiatives for adopted young people.
