One Adoption North and Humber

Our joined-up and regional approach to delivering adoption services will:enables us to find families for children with a plan of adoption in the most timely way. We pride ourselves on aiming high for our children and providing training and ongoing adoption support for adoptive parents and children from across our adoption community.

Our regional approach enables us to have a wider cohort of potential adoptive parents to meet the needs of our children waiting to be placed for adoption across North and Humber. Across One Adoption North and Humber, our joined up approach also ensures that we are able to develop our services more consistently and share good practice across the region.

Our kind, caring and experienced adoption staff will continue to work in our local area, with children’s social work staff, to ensure continuity of care and support for children and families.

Our priorities are to:

  • place children needing adoption without delay
  • place children with families able to meet their needs now and in the future
  • ensure that the assessment and approval process for people who want to adopt is as smooth and efficient as possible
