TALKadoption for Young Adopted People

What is TALKadoption?


Adopted young people tell us they want to get together and talk about what adoption is like for them.

TALKadoption groups meet monthly and during school holidays. It is an opportunity to meet and socialise with other adopted people through a range of fun and creative activities including graffiti art, creative arts, drama, music, film-making and more!

TALKadoption groups also offer you the chance to express your emotions and share your experiences with others from similar backgrounds, helping to explore your identity and build self confidence.

Get Involved!

If you've been adopted, or are in the process of being adopted, you are not alone. 1 in 4 people in the UK have been affected by adoption in some way.

We want people to understand how it feels to be adopted so that they support adopted young people better in the future. We're looking for young people to help shape our project and join our groups.

We currently have projects running for 0-21* year olds in 4 areas across the UK and we're hoping to expand this further. Click on the areas below to find out what's happening near you, and see how to get involved:
