Adopt NI is an independent registered charity established in 1989. Our main priority is to support any adult impacted by the lifelong journey of adoption. During 2008 we extended our services, to include adults separated from their family of origin through foster or residential care.
We are based in Belfast but work on a regional basis and offer a range of confidential support. We also deal frequently with enquiries from people in Southern Ireland, mainland UK and from other countries like Australia and America; indeed anywhere where people have a link to Northern Ireland.
Training, qualifications & experience
Our counsellors have experience of working with issues that can arise for those from the adoption and looked after communities. Our qualified counsellors have as a minimum qualification a Diploma in Person Centred or Integrative Counselling and are BACP registered.
