About One Adoption South Yorkshire

We are One Adoption South Yorkshire; we are currently four individual adoption agencies (Barnsley Metropolitan Borough Council, Doncaster Children’s Services Trust, Rotherham Metropolitcan Borough Council and Sheffield City Council) working together to provide adoption services across South Yorkshire. In due course our adoption teams will combine to create one single agency.

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.

Kathryn and James' story

After trying for a family for 10 years Kathryn and James adopted siblings and have never looked back

We always wanted more than one child and James really wanted a daughter, but we didn’t really discuss adopting siblings. We had spent 10 years trying for a family and had talked about adoption for a few years before attending an adoption information event and starting the assessment process. Six months later an adoption social worker told us about two sisters aged two and three and asked if we would be interested. I said yes!
