We acknowledge the life-long implications of adoptions and the need for ongoing support for all concerned. In line with the Adoption and Children Act 2002, Merton provides a range of post-adoption support services for anyone affected by adoption: adoptive families (including inter-country and step parent adopters), birth relatives (including parents, grandparents, uncles, aunts or siblings), and children and adults who have been adopted.
