Henrietta Delalu How did you become involved with adoption and Adoption UK? I became involved in adoption as a frontline social worker. I was privileged to have placed two children in an adoptive home. I also moved jobs to become an Operations manager for a post adoption service. Any specific skills or areas of expertise relevant to the work of Adoption UK? I am an adopter. I have experience of placing and supporting children in adoptive homes. I was the registered manager and ASSA of an adoption agency and I also assess applicants to become prospective adopters. How do you want to see Adoption UK develop over the next five years? In the next 5 years, I would like to see Adoption UK provide specific support services to BAME communities and using the co-production model to develop these services.
