About Us

UK Adoption Tracing Service was set up in 2001 to provide a professional and experienced search service for adults who wished to find their birth parents.

Since this time we have helped several hundred people to find their birth families and are continuing to do so using the most up to date search tools and years of specialised experience in our researchers.

Unlike many other search services we only offer our services following a free assessment so that your money is not wasted on empty promises. Our work has now expanded to working with Social Services Post Adoption Departments in order to help trace adopted adults under non-disclosure agreements.

You will be allocated a personal researcher,€ focused on your search,€ and with at least ten years experience of searching for birth relatives in adoption. Your researcher will remain in contact with you regularly through email, where you will be encouraged to ask any questions you may have or share any thoughts.

You will receive updates and reports as the search progresses,€ concluding in a full report detailing all the work that has been undertaken and where possible,€ to include any details of other birth relatives i.e siblings

It may have taken you a long time to come to the important decision of tracing a birth relative,€ which is why this service undertakes searches with care and ensures that all avenues available are meticulously checked and searched.

Confidentiality and sensitivity is always ensured,€ as is the dedication and focus sustained in tracing your birth relative. Although finding a person can never be guaranteed,€ all avenues are diligently and meticulously searched. Our success rate in 2016 was 98.8% and in 2017 was 98.7% results of which we are very proud.

The UK Adoption Tracing Service is registered under the Data protection Act 1998,€ Reg No:Z6344671
