Adoption UK is conducting a survey into adoption in the 21st Century so wants to hear the views of adoptive parents and prospective adopters.

Responses to the survey will form the basis of Adoption UK’s first Adoption Barometer, due to be published this summer. The barometer will be our flagship report, providing an annual stock-take of modern-day adoption.

The barometer will provide a modern snapshot of the adoption landscape across the UK. It will reflect the lived experiences of adoptive families and provide Adoption UK with vital evidence to further the case for the support and policy changes which many families need.

Whether you are a prospective adopter, or many years into your adoption journey, we would really like to hear from you. This is a detailed survey, so please take your time, and complete each section as fully as possible. We’d also be grateful if you could share this survey with other adoptive parents and prospective adopters.

The survey will include a particular ‘in-focus’ topic each year, the first being education as Adoption UK continues to collect evidence to inform its Equal Chance campaign.

Adoption UK’s education policy advisor, Becky White said: “It’s so important that we keep collecting the views and opinions of adoptive families to ensure our work is always in-step with the experiences and challenges facing families. Harvesting this evidence enables us to present a more compelling case for timely and appropriate support for adoptive families across the UK.”

The deadline for completing the survey is 11:59pm on Wednesday 3rd April 2019.

The survey is anonymous and all answers will be stored confidentially and securely. If you have any issues with the survey then please contact us at [email protected]. Adoption UK would like to thank you in advance for taking the time to complete this survey.
