Adoption file access

To follow any changes to this service, visit the Council Service Updates page.

Adults who have been adopted can request access to their original adoption files. These hold information about the circumstances of their adoption.

We will be able to help you with this and offer you support throughout this process.

If you would like to request access to your personal adoption file you can contact the Adoption Service for a confidential discussion. Alternatively, you can request this formally by writing to us.

If you require any further information please contact us. We will be happy to help.
