PAC-UK 'BIG CONSULT 2022' Launch via Zoom

Free Event

Date: April 20, 2023

This FREE to attend event is open to all parties affected by adoption and permanency, including social workers and other professionals.

This major consultation by PAC-UK commissioned by the National Adoption Strategy Team (RAA programme funded by the DfE), surveyed people adopted since the 1950s and birth parents whose children have been adopted since 1990, the “modern” adoption period.

Over 600 adoptees and birth parents shared their experience and views on a range of adoption issues and how these have changed over time, including: contact, reunion, court, contemporary services, mental health, identity and more.

The event will start with an introduction from Sarah Johal MBE, National Adoption Strategic Lead. Mike Hancock, National Strategic Lead for PAC-UK, accompanied by some experts by experience, will present the key findings and ask where these leave contemporary discussions around contact, adoption services, identity and the future of adoption.

Event start time 12.00noon | Event end time 1.00pm (a Zoom link will be sent to all attendees once registration is completed)

Availability: Spaces remaining.
