Could you get involved in National Adoption Week?

Are you an adopted person? Would you like to be featured in National Adoption Week? The agency is looking for adopted people (of all ages) who could provide a comparison of the experience of being adopted through the decades, including the following:

  • Adopted people who in adulthood have since adopted children themselves
  • Adopted people from brother and sister groups
  • Adopted people from a Black, Asian, Minority, Ethnic background
  • Adopted people with physical or additional needs

Featuring in the campaign includes:

  • Taking part in a recorded interview that would form part of a campaign film, to then be used on the You Can Adopt social media channels (as well as adoption agencies’ social media channels) and in UK press.
  • Taking part in photography that will also be used as part of the campaign, on social media and in UK press.
  • Taking part in interviews with media about the experience of being an adopted person (if comfortable).
  • To note, people willing to share their life stories must therefore be happy to tell their story publicly. The strong preference is for families to be shown in the films and in media, but anonymous stories and name changes can be considered. They can also work around your preferences for which kind of media you are happy to take part in.

Families will need to be available to film in a studio (location TBC – it would be great to know where you live and if you are able to travel, possibly to London} at a date that they will be in a position to confirm next week, with the campaign launch planned for October. Timings are quite tight, but there is some flexibility if needed. Travel expenses will be covered where filming occurs.

There may be opportunities to use actors for any adopted person who doesn’t want to be on screen or if there’s concerns around age etc. If anyone is interested, please get in touch with Megan Robinson meghan.robinson@nationaladoption.leeds.gov.uk
