Northumberland Family Placement offers a dedicated family finding service by a team of highly skilled workers. We recruit, prepare and assess singles, couples and existing families (with older children) for adoption. We are urgently seeking families for Northumberland children of all ages, including very young sibling groups. We also seek families for specific groups of children with disabilities, BME children and older children.

We work collaboratively with the Northern Consortium of Adoption Agencies to make the best and timely matches between our children and families. The team provides ongoing support to adopted children, adopted adults and their families.
