About Gill Haworth OBE
Gill Haworth is Chair of EurAdopt. Appointed in 2020, she previously served as a member of its Executive Board. Gill is a qualified social worker. She has worked in UK children’s services for local government and NGOs since 1971; primarily in fostering and adoption.
Since 1992 her work has focussed exclusively on intercountry adoption and she has published variously on the subject. In 1997 she founded IAC – The Centre for Adoption which continues to be the only accredited body in the UK specialising in intercountry adoption.
She has influenced the development of service provision in the UK through IAC’s innovative projects and training initiatives and through collaboration with other NGO’s and governmental bodies. She retired as IAC’s CEO in 2019, and her work was formally recognised when she was awarded the OBE that year.
