If you are over 18, were adopted and are resident in Brighton & Hove, we can offer:
- Birth Records Counselling to those seeking information about their origins through access to their birth records.
- Support and advice to adopted people who wish to register a veto to restrict birth relatives making contact with them.
If you are over 25 and seeking access to your birth records please start by making an online application to the General Registry Office.
