Adoption UK has recently launched a survey into adoption in the 21st Century and would like to hear from adoptive parents and prospective adopters across Wales. Responses received will form the basis of AUK's first Adoption Barometer which they hope to publish in the summer. The aim is for this to become an annual 'stock-take' of modern day adoption, providing valuable information about the experiences of adopters and adoptive families. A further aim being to inform policy changes in relation to adoption support that many families need. The detailed survey will include a particular 'in-focus' topic each year with the first being related to Education as AUK continue to gather evidence in line with their Equal Chance campaign.
