One Adoption North & Humber

We are five councils in the northern Yorkshire and Humber area - City of York, East Riding of Yorkshire, Hull, North East Lincolnshire and North Yorkshire County Councils - working together to deliver a single regional adoption service at a local level.


About One Adoption North & Humber

We provide training and support for those wanting to adopt a child right the way through the process. We have expert social work staff on hand to provide guidance and advice for those wanting to know more about adoption. We carry out assessment and training for those wishing to adopt, as well as finding families for children needing adoption and providing adoption support.
We also work with adopters, adopted children, birth families, the voluntary and private sectors to deliver a range of adoption support services. We believe that every child has the right to a stable, permanent, loving home.

Michelle and Chris started their adoption journey wanting a baby girl and completed it by adopting a five-year-old boy.

‘You learn a lot as an adopter. Michelle and Chris learned a little personality goes a long way!’

You've got a lot of new things to get used to. Some things you get used to more quickly than you would think and other things seemed to take longer. It's not like having a baby, because our son has already got a personality, he's already learnt a lot of behaviors and he can speak for himself.
