Ofsted Report

 

Thank you for all you have done to bring us together.Still shedding 46 years of tears every time I talk about it but hopefully that will get better!”

-A birth mother

An excellent and efficient service. Where the process was fully explained, at a reasonable cost. I found Jean to be very open, honest and generally a thoroughly nice person. Excellent communication and very regular updates, could not ask for a better intermediary service. So glad I did it and would recommend to anyone.!- A descendant of an adopted adult

Lots of support, understanding and empathy throughout and knowing that I could contact you and / or the intermediary at any time with any concerns or worries / questions.

“We would like to take this opportunity to thank you all for a wonderful first class service. It was very encouraging to know that you were all 'rooting' for us throughout what we feel turned out to be a very rapid result. We hope you continue to get such marvellous results. If at any time in the future you wish to use our name as a recommendation in any situation, please feel free to do so. We cannot speak too highly of your service and the input of Linda Cherry. Keep up the good work.”

(Sister, 2017)


I would like a special mention and big thank you to Linda Cherry who was my intermediary. She was wonderful throughout. She kept me up to date, was enormously supportive and although sadly my sister passed away during the very early part of the search / contact, I was put in touch with a cousin and so could share so much of my sister’s life. Thank you all. I now feel that I have closure.

These ladies did a terrific job of locating my son and being the intermediaries with a wonderful conclusion after 46 years. Keep up the great work, Keith

I would like to add that your professional, but friendly and sympathetic handling of what obviously was a very traumatic experience, helped me to come to terms with what had happened to my son. Thank you Jean.” Birth mother

Both the information given on the website and by the literature provided made it very clear what services were available and also what to expect. There were no hidden extras in cost. Jean presents herself as very professional and competent in dealing with issues surrounding adoption, which is exactly what she is.” Adopted adult

Clear explanations. Helpful approach. Prompt replies to questions. Really appreciated being kept up to date and informed
re the process of the search.” Birth father

All that is left is for me to thank you again for an excellent service and for finding my lovely sister.” Birth sister

The way you explained the process, and provided very useful context which helped manage my expectations hence I appreciated the possible difficulties and disappointments before embarking on the process. Very helpful as well to just be able to commit to stage one initially. I felt in safe hands and having been strongly referred to you, I am particularly grateful to the referrer!” Birth brother
