Adoption survey

Share this article

I am studying Britain’s adoption process as part of my doctoral research and am interested to speak on the telephone to anyone who is thinking about or has made some inquiries about adopting a child.

The reason I am studying this is to better understand why there is a huge mismatch in adoption, with only one in ten enquiries from people interested in adopting a child resulting in an adoption taking place.

The conversation would last 20 minutes. It would be confidential and the findings would be anonmised. There is no link between my study and any adoption application that might be made.

It is hoped the research will result in a larger and more diverse pool of adopters for those children waiting for adoption.

Please contact Teri Rogers at or telephone 02392 842838 to arrange an interview.
