Dear all,

We hope that you and your families are well during these unprecedented and difficult times.

Dear Parents,

Just to let you know that Barnardos Post Adoption Service is continuing to offer services throughout the current health crisis. While we cannot meet with our clients face to face our  staff are offering Skype counselling and support sessions to adopted teenagers and children and their parents, as well as adopted adults and birth family members. We are finding that the Skype sessions are already being really welcomed by families around the country!


Our phones continue to be staffed in our three centres in Dublin (01) 8134100 , Cork (021) 2038005 and Galway (091) 454489 . We will call you back if we miss you! You are most welcome to phone us or email us at Our Post Adoption Helpline continues to operate at (01)4536388 on Tuesday and Thursday mornings.


We are sorry to have to postpone our “Let’s think About Adoption” workshops for children scheduled for 7th April in Killarney, 8th April in Kilkenny and 16th April in Galway. We will arrange new dates as soon as we can. Our “ Sharing Birth Stories” workshop scheduled to be run in Dublin on 21st May has been rearranged for Thursday 24th September. Hopefully all will be well by then!


Best  wishes for safety and good health,

Christine Hennessey Project Leader Barnardos Post Adoption Service
