Support for birth parents of adopted children

In partnership with PAC-UK, we offer support to birth parents and families in Birmingham. This support is available at any time from when a plan for adoption is made to when their child is 18.

PAC-UK's First Family Service can help you by: 

  • providing emotional and practical support and advice
  • supporting you with letterbox and contact 
  • looking at the reasons for the adoption and the future
