Adopted Young Persons Research

Along with the other Independent Adoption Agencies throughout England, we commissioned a survey amongst adopted children, which has revealed that they are positive about their future, safe, and that they have an adult they could trust in their lives who sticks by them through life’s ups and downs. In these respects, adopted children are more secure than their peers.

A total of 95 children and young people were involved in the study which comprised an online survey, focus groups in Leeds, the East Midlands and London, and participation groups in the North East, Merseyside and the North West.

The experiences and views of these young people have been brought together to create an animation, aimed at helping those who are thinking about adoption or going through their adoption journey, you can watch it at:
