Adoption UK is a national charity that works with and on behalf of adoptive parents, prospective adopters and carers.

All adopted children have suffered the loss of being separated from their birth families. Unfortunately many have also experienced neglect and/or abuse in those families. For many children, this trauma can lead to emotional, behavioural, educational or developmental difficulties for which many require ongoing support to help them overcome. It is therefore essential that prospective adopters, adoptive parents and anyone who cares for a traumatised child receives the correct ongoing support too.

Adoption UK provides adoptive families across the UK with this vital support at all stages of the adoption process in the form of information, guidance, training and education. We also successfully campaign for continued improvements in the adoption landscape.

Join our team and help us build brighter futures for children

Runners must be aged 17 or older and all we ask is that you agree to raise a minimum of £150 in sponsorship to secure your free place on the Adoption UK team. All funds raised will enable Adoption UK to support adoptive families across the UK and help build brighter futures for children unable to live with their birth parents.

All Adoption UK runners will be provided with fundraising support and an Adoption UK running vest. You will also be treated to some well-earned refreshments and a sports massage at our post-run reception.

To join the team please email fundraising@adoptionuk.org.uk or call Holly on 01295 752260.
