Adopted Adults & Birth Relatives
Caritas Care (previously known as Catholic Caring Services) provides a sensitive and professional service to all adopted adul ts and the adult birth relatives, of those adopted through the agency in years gone by.
Adopted adults over the age of 18 years may wish to access information about their adoption, and birth history. It may be that they just want to find out more about their background, something which often people feel they want to do when they have children of their own. In some cases, the adopted adult may wish to trace and seek to make contact with a birth relative, and we can then provide an intermediary service, and support the adopted adult and relatives through this process.
A birth relative of someone adopted through the agency may also request a service and Caritas Care will respond sensitively to all such enquiries.
If you think you or your relative may have been adopted through Catholic Caring Services, and you want to know what to do next then please write to: The Adoption Manager, Caritas Care, 218 Tulketh Rd, Preston, PR2 1ES, with your details. There is no cost for this service.
If an adopted adult was not adopted through Caritas Care they can access a service from their local authority.
There are many agencies that are able help adopted adults and you may find the links below useful:
