One Adoption South Yorkshire logo

We are One Adoption South Yorkshire; the regional adoption agency for South Yorkshire. We are made up of the adoption services at Barnsley Council, Doncaster Children’s Services Trust, Rotherham Council and Sheffield City Council, working together to provide adoption services across South Yorkshire. 

Our priority is to find loving, stable, permanent homes for children in local authority care in our region. 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.
