  • adults who were adopted and who wish to access their birth records
  • adults who were adopted and who wish to request an Intermediary Service to make contact with birth relatives
  • birth relatives of adopted people who wish to request an Intermediary Service to make contact with an adopted birth relative who is over 18 years of age
  • parents considering placing their baby for adoption
  • letterbox contact services – support and guidance

We also advise those looking at adopting children from other countries.
