Request from radio presenter

Press and PR July 7, 2021 13:51

This request has been checked and verified by Adoption UK.

My name is Joel Brown. I am a 21 year old radio presenter from Derby who has been presenting all over the world for 6 years. I am in the process of creating a podcast linked with Podium.Me. This podcast will focus on the adoption process and the experiences of young people (ages 16-25) and their thoughts about the process. I am looking for people who I can speak to who have experience in the adoption process, whether that be on the administrative end or if they are an adopter/adoptee, and who are comfortable to speak about their opinions on the adoption process. To contact me, you can email me at [email protected] or at 07852304526.

Administrative end? What does that mean?

what knowledge/experience/understanding does this 21 year old - who until recently was working as a trainee sales rep (I checked him out too) - have of adoption and all its trials and tribulations?

Seriously AUK!?

Administrative end.... Such as for social services or through the AUK charity I'd assume. is by young people for young people which is why he's asking for that age group.

Well if he wants AUK to respond then it doesn’t need to be here … ditto if he wants SS to respond.

And there aren’t very many adopters here in that age group - and these boards are for adopters, SGOs etc rather than adoptees do not sure this is his target audience in any respect

I’m also not sure how much info he’d get from adoptees about ‘the process’.

Not at all clear to me if he wants to know about the mechanics of adoption or adoptees experience of being an adoptee

Yes if he’s looking for experience of adoption itself he might get some youngsters willing to share (bearing in mind confidentiality issues) but I doubt any would be able to say much about the process - even from their prospective
