Charity: Adopt NI
Charity number: 102048
Description: Adopt is an independent registered charity established in 1989 in Northern Ireland in response to the introduction of legislation entitling adopted adults to their original birth certificates. Our main aim has always been to provide support for adults facing the challenges of adoption (adult adoptees, adoptive & birth parents with adult adoptees). However, during 2008 we extended our services, to birth parents that are currently losing/have recently lost a child to adoption and, to adults separated from their family of origins through being looked-after. Our main base is in Belfast and our work covers the whole of Northern Ireland. We also deal frequently with enquiries from people in Southern Ireland, from mainland UK and from other countries, e.g. Australia and America; indeed anywhere where people have a link to Northern Ireland. The Management Committee is responsible for the overall governance and strategic direction of Adopt NI and the development of the organisation's mission. The aims and values of the organisation are developed in line with the Memorandum and Articles of Association and other regulatory guidelines.

You can support any of the 200,000 UK-registered charities.
Our charities range from big national charities to local schools, churches and social groups.
The donation amount varies from store to store. Most of the time you raise a percentage of what you spend - between 1% and 10% - whilst sometimes it's a fixed amount.
With some stores there are different rates or restrictions depending on what you buy - you can see more information on each store's page on our website.
Yes! You don't pay anything extra for your shopping, the donation is made at no extra cost to you.
It's also completely free for your charity. There are no joining or payment fees, so 100% of the donation will reach the charity.
We pay charities once a month by BACS via our payment partner, The Online Foundation.
You can view the status of every donation within your account. A donation will typically move from 'pending' to 'approved' to 'paid' over the course of a few months.
As a "thank you" for sending them sales and customers, our stores pay us a commission.
We use this commission to make a donation to your chosen charity.
We donate 50% of the commission we receive, with the other 50% used to fund the on-going development of Give as you Live Online, which is free to all charities and users.
All donation amounts we display represent the amount the charity will receive - a 5% donation means a 5% donation!
