FamilyConnect helps adults who have been adopted or in care find answers to questions about their origins.
Finding out about your background and family members can help you understand inherited health risks, make important life choices and understand more about why you were separated from your birth family.
Lots of people aren’t aware of their legal rights when accessing their birth and care records, or what they can expect to receive and how to go about searching for information in the first place.
Family Action’s FamilyConnect website helps people explore these issues, providing information, guidance, support and signposting to help. Developed with the insight and leadership of experts David Holmes CBE, Julia Feast OBE, University College London’s MIRRA project and the Care Leavers’ Association.
