Birthlink, the Edinburgh based charity which offers support and advice to people affected by adoption, is Southside gallery Art & Craft Collective’s charity partner for 2024.

The charity operates the Scotland-wide Adoption Contact Register which invites adopted people, birth parents and other birth relatives to register their details in the hope that there will be a link allowing future contact. This year is the Register’s fortieth birthday.

“The charity does wonderful, often life-changing work and it deserves to be much better known and supported,” says gallery director Linsay Given Black.  “We hope to help that happen.”

A member of Birthlink’s staff will be in the gallery regularly to answer questions and provide information to those interested in adoption and perhaps finding out more about volunteering.
