Hi, In this episode we take the opportunity to catch up with AUK's Becky Brooks and talk about the Adoption Barometer. We also asked her to share a few thoughts on the recently released Adoption Strategy.

We chat through specific elements such as education and ongoing support but the main thrust of the discussion was the contribution of adult adoptees to the Barometer. These focus largely on the transition to adulthood for adoptees and we discuss the specific challenges that families face in relation to access to appropriate support and services. As always with Becky it's an interesting and fun discussion with her passion shining through the minor bickering of Scott and Al.
