Adoption UK - 50th AnniversaryAdoption UK is 50! 50 is a big milestone, and an opportunity to pause, reflect and plan for the future. For 50 years we have supported, advocated, championed and been there for adoptive families around the UK. Today our cause is as clear and compelling as ever; to secure the right support at the right time for the children at the heart of every adoptive and kinship care family. For Adoption UK, this all began in 1971, when Elvis Presley and The Jackson 5 were in the charts, a gallon of petrol was 33p and two adopters starting running a voluntary organisation from their homes, for adopted children with special needs. Adoption has changed a lot since then, and so have we. Contact us at [email protected] Anniversary activities & events, We’re arranging a whole summer of activities and events for you, your kids, your wider family and friends, designed to help us all celebrate the wonderful diversity of the adoption community.
