About CMB Adoption Support Services
who works as an independent contractor to CMB.
Graham is a qualified, registered, independent Social Worker and has had the lead role, within a large UK Local Authority, for the provision of services to adopted people and their relatives. He has been a qualified Social Worker for some twenty seven years, the last twelve of which were within an Adoption Support Team.
Speaking about his work with CMB he says ‘When it became clear that the service was to be restricted in Local Authorities to only what had to be provided by law, I left and joined Carol in order to continue to work with adopted adults and relatives in their efforts to obtain information about themselves and their families. Few local authorities provide this comprehensive service anymore and it is now the role of Independent Adoption Support agencies to fill the gap’.
