Adoption UK is the leading charity providing support, community and advocacy for all those parenting or supporting children who cannot live with their birth parents. We connect adoptive families, provide information and signposting on a range of adoption-related issues and campaign for improvements to adoption policy and legislation at the highest levels. With over 8,000 members, we provide a strong, supportive community and are the largest voice of adopters in the UK.

Adoption UK Impact Report - Our Work 2019-2020

Our short video (below) provides a snapshot of just some of the things we’ve done over the past year.

We’ve supported some amazing families and we’re incredibly proud of everything we’ve achieved. We want to say a big thank you to everyone who has helped make all this happen – your support has helped change the lives of vulnerable children.

We’re certainly not standing still and there’s lots more we want to do – we’ll be giving you more regular updates on the difference we’re making as we continue to adapt to the current situation and reach even more adopters.
