Support Network of Ireland is a peer support network which exists to
promote and demand equal human and civil rights for all those
affected by the outdated, unjust Irish adoption system. It is
a sister organisation of Adoption Rights Alliance, which primarily
concerns itself with adoption legislative changes and related
issues. Please see below for details of our support services.
Please use email as the first point of contact with us if you have
internet access. As we run our services on a completely
voluntary basis, we may not be able to respond to you immediately,
however we hope our autoresponder will be of assistance in the
meantime. Our email address is: firstname.lastname@example.org
Due to circumstances beyond our control (lack of resources), the
helpline is suspended until further notice. Please contact us via
People affected by Ireland's closed secret adoption system have been
participating in online forums for well over a decade and the value
of having an internet based support network has been self evident.
Ireland's adoption community is spread far and wide both nationally
and internationally and having an online forum brings people
together instantly wherever they are in the world.
