Who is Adoption North London?

Adoption North London is a partnership of six local authority adoption agencies: Barnet, Camden, Enfield, Hackney, Haringey and Islington. We have a wealth of experience and a wide range of children waiting to be matched.  The aim for us is to find loving families for each child in need of a loving home, even if there is not a perfect ethnic match. Not every adopter has to share the same race as their child, but you do need to support and value their ethnic and cultural background in everyday life. We can also advise about overseas adoption.

So why not begin your journey with us today and discover if adoption is right for you.

Please select either office

You will need to live in or around London and the M25.
