AUK 2022 Adoption Barometer

7 January 2022 | All

The AUK 2022 Adoption Barometer survey is now open! For a fourth year, those with direct experience of adoption are being asked to contribute to a UK wide survey about their own experiences.  The information gathered from previous years has really assisted in building a case for further support and to help build the case for more support for every adoptive family, we need to know what life is really like for you. If you’ve taken part in the Barometer survey before, please do it again. The picture being built over multiple years is what makes decision makers really listen and for us at St. David’s we use the information gathered from the survey to inform how we deliver and improve on services going forward.

This year, the focus is on contact as well as the usual questions posed by the survey on approvals, matching , education, adoption support and more.

This year there are two surveys which are completely anonymous:

The main survey for prospective adopters and adoptive parents with children aged 0-25 is here:

Here’s the link to an additional survey for adopted adults aged 18+ about experiences of contact:

If you haven’t done it before the survey should only take around 20 minutes to complete -thank you!
