The Campaign

Between 29th November and 6th December Adoption UK is taking part in the Big Give Christmas Challenge. During the Christmas Challenge each donation we receive will be match funded. So if you donate £10 we will receive £20. One donation, double the impact.  We are hoping to raise £25,000 towards our Chance to Thrive programme and make a difference to the lives of adopted young people. Last year 46% of adopted young people sought professional mental health support. We want to reduce this number and support those under 25 who are struggling with their mental health. Our Chance to Thrive youth programme is the only programme of its kind in the UK and addresses mental health issues in adopted young people through connections to peers in safe environments & specialist support. You can read more about the programme here. Thank you to all supporters who have donated! Your generosity will help us reach our £25,000 target.
