About One Adoption North and Humber




One Adoption North and Humber is a regional adoption agency providing adoption services for five local councils across the North and Humber region: East Riding, Hull, North East Lincolnshire, North Yorkshire and York.

We believe that all children deserve a loving, stable, permanent family. Our focus is on finding families for children in care and providing training and on-going post-adoption support for parents and children in our established adoption community.

We work closely with our adoptive parents and peer mentors to ensure that we provide the kind of support and training that families want and need. We also work with adopters, adopted children, birth families, the voluntary and private sectors to deliver a range of adoption support services. 

Whether you want to start your adoption journey today, are just looking to find out bit more about adoption or wish to find the right adoption support services for you and your family – you are in the right place. Our experienced, friendly and professional adoption workers are ready to talk you through the adoption process, providing support every step of the way.
