Barnardo’s is one of the UK’s largest children’s charities, established for over 150 years and has been a Voluntary Adoption Agency in the Yorkshire region since 2003.
Ofsted inspected the service in February 2016 rated it as an overall Good with two areas graded outstanding. The inspector wrote ‘some aspects of the service are outstanding, children make exceptional progress and achieve excellent outcomes. It is led and managed well by people who are passionate and are committed to adoption and to improving the service. They are supported in this by staff who are enthusiastic and dedicated to ensuring that children have positive outcomes in stable and safe adoptive families. An adopter said: ‘I can’t praise them enough.’ (Ofsted Report, Feb 2016)
Barnardo’s Yorkshire has a proven track record of working with all kinds of families. We offer a high level of support and training to help families consider a wide range of placements including early permanence, older children, BME children, children with disabilities and sibling groups.
We are keen to hear from those interested in adoption and offer support and advice from the very start.
