Adoption UK is the leading charity providing support, community and advocacy for all those whose lives involve adoption, including those parenting children who cannot live with their birth families, and adopted people. We connect people, provide support and training and campaign for improvements to adoption policy and practice. 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 some of the things we’ve done over the past year.

We’ve had the privilege of supporting thousands of people, and we want to say a big thank you to everyone who has helped – you have helped change the lives of a lot 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, and the challenges we’re working to address.
