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.

Why join us?

Wherever you are in your adoption journey, we are here to support you, connect you with others and campaign for what matters most to you and your family. We are independent, non-judgemental and all our services are confidential. Your membership also makes Adoption UK a more powerful advocate for adoptive families – the more members we have, the bigger and louder our ‘voice’ will be when it comes to raising awareness and securing support for all adoptive families.
