This national research project aims to identify the support and service needs of people affected by past adoption policies and practices, particularly closed adoption processes in place until the 1990s.
It is hoped that people who have been touched by adoption experiences will take part in the study. This includes mothers and fathers, people who were adopted, adoptive parents, and other family members. Information is being collected using an online survey, in-depth interviews and hard-copy surveys by request.
