Support for adoptees and families

In Calderdale there is a strong support network for birth relatives, adoptive families and adults who have been adopted.

This support takes the form of advice and counselling, buddying with other adoptive families and special medical services.

By assessing your needs we can link you up with other agencies to provide support advice and counselling and help you access your birth and adoption records.
