Brand New Podcast - Adoption in Focus

Following the huge success of our podcast series Education in Focus, we’re delighted to announce the launch of our brand-new podcast, Adoption in Focus. Adoption in Focus will feature a range of voices and perspectives discussing a variety of subjects related to adoption.

In the first episode, host Leigh is joined by Adoption Focus CEO Anna Sharkey. Anna gives a fascinating insight into her background and her personal and professional experiences of adoption, talks about the history and current situation with the voluntary adoption sector, and offers advice for adopters and those considering starting the process.

Episode One is available to everyone via Buzzsprout and on your preferred podcast platform, including Spotify, Apple, and Amazon Music. Adopterverse users can find it on the platform via the Resources for Adopters menu and listen there or download to listen to offline.

Upcoming episodes of the podcast will discuss subjects including PACE, the adoption process, going to panel, adopting older children, and adopting as a same sex couple.

We hope you enjoy Adoption in Focus, and we'd love to hear from you if you have any feedback, if there are any topics you'd like to hear us discuss, or even if you'd like to get involved and share your own experiences. Please email the podcast team.
