Welcome to the Aitheantas campaigns website.

About us

Aitheantas is campaigning to give Irish adoptees access to their own information on Health, Heritage and History and acknowledgment of Identity Rights.

Aitheantas means Identity as Gaelige. Identity is something that is denied every adoptee regardless of where they were born. Aitheantas is on a mission to change that. Aitheantas is campaigning to give Irish adoptees access to their own information on Health, Heritage and History and acknowledgment of their Identity Rights. 

CAMPAIGN INITIATIVES

Email your TD – tell them to end the discrimination

Adoptees from historical adoptions are denied the most basic of knowledge on their Health, History and Heritage. We need new laws with a new focus, please send an email to your TD asking them to change these laws. End the lies and stigma.

Take part in our survey – make your voice heard

If you are an Adoptee, child of an adoptee or the spouse/partner of an adoptee, please complete our online survey. It is anoymous and only takes 5 minutes. Your data will be processed in accordance with our Privacy Policy which can be viewed here.
