Adoption North London is a partnership of six local authority adoption agencies: Barnet, Camden, Enfield, Hackney, Haringey and Islington. We are a specialist adoption recruitment service across the North London area who work together to find adopters for children who need new families, offering the best possible support and preparation to adopters. We know about all the children waiting for new families within our six boroughs and we aim to ensure that children are linked and matched with the families who can best meet their needs. All our children are special to us and we welcome your interest in offering a home to a child. Adopting a child is a life-changing experience. Adoption offers children the love, stability and security of family life they may not have experienced before. It’s one of the most important decisions you could make, so we are here to help you find out if adoption is right for you. Every year in England around 4,000 children are waiting for loving adoptive families. These children come from a range of backgrounds, but what they have in common is a difficult start in life and that they can no longer be brought up by their birth families. All these children need a loving, stable home. To proceed with your interest in adoption, your next step is to come to one of our Adoption Information Evenings, which are held fortnightly, you will find details on our website at
