Anyone adopted in Yorkshire?

Report content

Hi,


We are hoping to register our interest to adopt next month so would love to hear people’s experiences. I am aware that the region has now become ‘one adoption’ and split into three regions. Because of a possible conflict of interest within our immediate area I *think* we will have the option to decide which area in the consortium we would work with if our application is successful. (Obviously depending on capacity of the team etc)


We’re feeling a bit stuck on which area to specify if we get some say in it so just wondered if people would mind sharing their experiences. I understand people might not want to give away their location so please feel free to PM if you’d prefer


Thanks Smile

Think we have chatted before but I am in Yorkshire - and the same part as you. Even round here you can be assessed by one of the three assessment teams which would avoid some of conflict as from memory you work with one of the LAs. Children could be placed from anywhere within RAA and that would be done carefully round potential conflicts - DH & I ended up with a local child from a non substance misuse background due to his job. If you want to meet up to chat just PM - we adopted pre RAA but I know a reasonable amount about it for many reasons.


The other thing to consider is the voluntary agencies who are part of the RAA for assessment at least

Fab! I’ll PM you this evening after work if that’s okay? I do remember us chattinr you were super helpful. We’ve been to a few events within our RAA and one within another and so now trying to narrow down between the one I work for and another which we really liked the feel from. Not sure if we can ask for a visit from two within the same RAA. Will explain more in a PM later.


Thank you so much for your reply. If our ROI is accepted I’d definitely be taking you out for a coffee to pick your brains! Xx

Ooooh, that’s exciting Imogen...you’ll have to keep me posted! Would you mind saying whereabouts you are? (In a PM if you’d prefer) have you heard anything back yet? I’m not sure what the time line is tbh but hope it’s quick for you x

I don't live in Yorkshire but I have heard that South Yorkshire are pretty good and quick putting through post adoption ASF fund requests

Fab, thanks pear tree. Planning to give S Yorks a ring this week to see if we’re close enough to them to consider assessing us. X
