Our acclaimed programme has been improving the lives of adoptive families for more than ten years
Did you know that we operate services across England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales?
Adoption UK is the only national self-help charity run by and for adoptive parents and long-term foster carers, offering support before, during and after adoption. By becoming a member of Adoption UK, you will receive immediate access to our range services, as well as supporting the work that we do with adoptive families across the UK.
There are three ways you can join Adoption UK:
Adopters, prospective adopters and long term foster carers can join as an individual or family member to receive information and support. Members can choose to receive Adoption Today magazine only, or Adoption Today and our family finding magazine Children Who Wait, which includes access to Children Who Wait Online.
Practitioners with an interest in adoption can access information and benefits by becoming an associate member, either as an individual or on behalf of their organisation. If you are a professional working with adoptive families or children in the field of education, health, therapeutic or legal services, you could benefit from a range of information and support we can offer you.
Local authorities and voluntary adoption agencies can access a wealth of information, benefits and discounts to enable them to give quality support to their prospective adopters and adoptive families. Once an agency is a member, extra magazines can be purchased at a discounted rate for social workers belonging to that agency.
As a registered Adoption Support Agency, we have been asked by Ofsted to make the following surveys available to all our users in order for them to give feedback on our services:
We're continuing our research to find out about our members and what you would like to see more (or less!) of from Adoption UK.
Last month we asked you about conference speakers and subjects. This month we would like to find out a little more about Adoption UK members and their families. Future surveys will also include non-members.
The short questionnaire which you can access at the link below, covers what stage of the adoption process you're at, if you've experienced any difficulties and a few brief questions about your experiences of and opinions of Adoption UK.
