It was once the case that adults who were adopted as children were able to find out little about their birth families.
Likewise, birth families often thought that they could discover very little about what happened to the child who was adopted.
Our family tracing and birth records counselling services are currently only available to individuals who were adopted through St. Francis’ Children’s Society.
Until further notice, we are unable to offer these services to people whose adoption cases were handled by other agencies.
Thank you for your understanding. Please do keep an eye on this page for future updates.
With the implementation of the Adoption and Children’s Act 2002, birth relatives now have a right to request information.
If your child was adopted through St. Francis’ Children’s Society, the first step is to contact us and we can confirm whether we hold the relevant records.
If we do hold the records relating to your child’s adoption, you can make a formal application to trace your birth children through us, as long as they are over 18 and no restrictions have been placed on your contact.
Please contact us if you need further information on how to access this service, or have any queries about the support on offer.
