Campaigning

Our work to improve surrogacy law

Brilliant Beginnings campaigns for families created through surrogacy. Our non-profit objectives include raising awareness, promoting understanding, campaigning for progressive law reform and working to improve the experience of surrogacy for UK families.

Our campaigning work: how and why

CampaigningWe work hard to help people understand that surrogacy arrangements work positively where they are handled ethically, legally and responsibly.

Some of our campaigning work has a prominent face, you will see and hear us championing surrogacy and modern families in the media, such as on Radio 5 Live and in GQ, and at public events and debates.

Some of our campaigning work is less visible, but no less important. We work to effect change behind the scenes, and to influence policy and law wherever we can, including in Parliament, with the Department of Health and with other influencers and lobby groups.

Most recently, we have helped change the law around single parent surrogacy and we have helped write the Department of Health guidance for managing surrogacy in the UK.

Here are also a number of organisations we support, and we would encourage you to engage with them and get to know the important work that they do.

How you can get involved and help us

As a non-profit organisation, we can access key people and organisations in a position to make change. But we couldn’t do it without the support of our intended parents and surrogates, past and present, as well as all our supporters.
