Who We Are

Yorkshire Adoption Agency (formerly Doncaster Adoption and Family Welfare Society) has been based in Doncaster since 1946. We are a Voluntary Adoption Agency, Private Ltd Company and Registered Charity. The Agency is governed by a Board of Trustees however is managed on a day to day basis by the Director. Like all Local Authorities and Voluntary Adoption Agencies we are regulated and inspected by Ofsted.


The Agency is a child focused organisation which aims to recruit, train and approve adoptive parents for vulnerable children who are Looked After by Local Authorities throughout the UK.


Given that we have almost seventy years experience in adoption work we realise that our adoptive families may need support at any times in their lives and we provide this without delay when this is requested.


At the Agency we pride ourselves on giving a speedy and friendly response to anyone who contacts us to enquire about adoption. We are pleased to hear from potential adopters regardless of their gender, age, sexuality, disability, ethnicity, religion or marital status.


We are a welcoming organisation and our potential and approved adopters find it helpful that we have a consistent Staff Team who are able to provide the personal service on which we pride ourselves.


We have over twenty five years experience in Inter Country Adoption and are approved to assess the suitability of potential adopters who wish to adopt a child from overseas.


The Agency is committed to providing an equally high quality service to our potential adopters whether they hope to adopt a child in the UK or from overseas.
