In order to start your adoption journey, the first step is to attend, or view, one of our information events. At our events you will, meet social workers, hear about the process, hear from an adopter and meet others that might be in similar situations to yourself and your own family. We hold regular events for potential adopters to learn more about adoption and decide if it’s the right path to becoming a parent for them and if they are ready to start the process.
Our events will provide you with:
- Information about how you could become an adoptive parent/family
- And understanding of how we will get to know you and work with you during the process
- The truth about how adoption really feels from an adopter's real life perspective
- An overview of the children who are typically waiting for an adoptive family in this region
- Information about what training and support is available
In West Yorkshire and South Yorkshire the information events are being held virtually due to COVID-19.
To find out when the next event is in your region, please select a One Adoption region using the dropdown button below.
***One Adoption North and Humber only***
If you are in the One Adoption North and Humber area, due to the ongoing Covid-19 situation, we have taken the decision not to hold face-to-face adoption information events for the foreseeable future. Your safety and well-being is important to us. However we do still need to find families for children who are waiting for adoption throughout the region.
We have therefore put together an information film for you to watch in your own time which contains a lot of the information you would normally receive by attending an event. Once you have watched the film you are then welcome to apply for a 'virtual visit' with one of our team to start the process.
The link to the film is only available on request - please complete the enquiry form at the bottom of this page to request the link. If you would like to talk to one of our team about adoption, please get in touch on 0345 305 2576 or via our enquiry form here.
