We encourage you to join the National Adoption Contact Preference Register. This is a way of letting us know your views on contact. Joining the Contact Register is voluntary and contact will only happen where both the adopted person and their birth relative wish to have contact. The Contact Register is not a tracing service.  At the moment we have a lot more adopted people than birth relatives on the Contact Register. Download the forms here to join the Contact Register.
