Birmingham Children's Trust is joining a national campaign to champion the voices of those impacted by adoption this National Adoption Week.

National Adoption week 2021, which runs 18th-24th October, is dedicated to everyone who has been impacted by adoption. This includes the voices of people whose stories are often less heard such as  adopted people, adopters, birth parents and  Children's Services staff. By sharing their stories, the campaign hopes to bust myths surrounding modern adoption and increase understanding of the adoption process today a range of perspectives.
