Adoption UK

We are the leading charity providing support, awareness and understanding for those parenting or supporting children who cannot live with their birth parents. Our Mission is; an equal chance of a bright future for every child unable to live with their birth parents. To secure the right support, at the right time for the children at the heart of every adoptive and kinship care family. Together we're family. Adoptive families face daily battles to get the longer-term support and specialist help they need. Since Covid-19 struck, many families have told us they are under even more pressure, feeling increased isolation and are heading towards breaking point. Please help us build brighter futures for these vulnerable children.

Adoption UK is 50!

A big milestone, and an opportunity to pause, reflect and plan for the future.

For 50 years we/Adoption UK have supported, advocated, championed and been there for adoptive families around the UK. Today our/their cause is as clear and compelling as ever; to secure the right support at the right time for the children at the heart of every adoptive and kinship care family.

Times are tough for every family – but it’s especially challenging for those parenting children who have experienced neglect or abuse. Most Adopted children will have experienced trauma their early lives. This has a lasting impact on their relationships, health, learning and future chances. That’s not fair!

Adoption gives children a second chance of stability, permanence, and the love and nurture that all children need – but it’s a lifelong journey – adoption on its own is not the solution. We won’t stop until every family has what they need to thrive and each child has the best chance of a brighter future.

Adoption UK provides ground breaking peer support, community outreach and champions the rights of vulnerable children.

Our aim is to raise £50,000 in 2021 our 50th year!  Can you help us raise these vital funds to make lasting changes for the children we love.
