Finding your birth family
Adoption contact registers
Adoption contact registers provide a way for adopted people and birth relatives to register their interest in making contact with one another.
If you were adopted you can add yourself to the Adoption Contact Register to express an interest in finding your family.
If you know the adoption agency that arranged the adoption you can also contact them.
You can request that they keep a record of your contact details and that you are ready to be approached.
Contact details for adoption agencies (including voluntary adoption agencies) can be found at Adoption Search Reunion
You may wish to talk about your feelings with a member of our adoption team. If you would like to do this, please contact us using the details below.
