This document reports on the findings of an evaluation of Barnardo's LINK Adoption Support Service.

Using a therapeutic approach, LINK works with three groups of service users: birth family members, adoptees (children and adults) and adopters - groups that are all affected by adoption, but may have different issues and support needs. As a service LINK is managed by two teams, Therapeutic Counselling and Attachment Focus Therapy, that together offer nine different support services. Over 200 LINK therapists trained in adoption issues and located across southern England and further afield, carry out direct work with service users.
