We provide a service to adopted adults who were directly placed for adoption as babies by the Agency.
We know that many of the adults will want to have information about their origins and the reasons for their adoption. We will therefore provide counselling (where necessary) and share this information with them as far as we can.
Our Adopted adults after this may wish to attempt to contact members of their birth families. Whilst we as an Agency cannot provide this service we will signpost the adopted Adult to other Agencies who may be able to help them.
Sometimes birth relatives of our adopted adults may wish to make contact with them. Again, although we do not provide this service ourselves we will provide details of other agencies who do.
If you were adopted through this Agency or are a birth relative hoping to have information about a child you know was placed for adoption by the Agency and need information please contact us.
