My name is Kate Wood and I am a PhD student within the department of Social Work at the University of Hull.
I have been awarded a scholarship by the University of Hull to carry out research addressing gay and lesbian adoption and fostering in England and Wales.
I am interested in looking at the experiences of gay and lesbian adopters and foster carers who have applied since the introduction of supportive legislation within the last decade - In particular the Adoption and Children Act 2002.
If you would like to be involved in the project or require further information I would love to hear from you! Please e-mail me at:
