The project: To create a central hub to coordinate and promote the activities of local authorities in North, South and West Yorkshire.

The site features a secure log in area for potential adopters to access application forms, reading matter, calendar of events as they embark on their adoption journey.

Fine-grained permissions allow three levels of applicants as they move along the adoption process with each permission allowing access to a greater amount of resources and support material. These features take advantage of Drupal’s powerful user/permissions settings and PML’s experience in building permission-based interfaces.

The solution: Regional adoption agency website with distinct user groups and multiple editor roles. It acts as the face of organisation, with a wealth of content. Includes news, events and adoption journey content all built and themed to meet WCAG 2.1 standards. Administered via multiple regional offices.

We’re super pleased with the end result and the marketing lead for One Adoption agrees too: “We are very happy with our bright, new website which has been created with the end-user in mind. From start to finish Proportion were always on hand with sound advice and quick to deal with any tweaks and changes.”

One Adoption is made up of three regional adoption agencies; One Adoption North and Humber, One Adoption West Yorkshire, and One Adoption South Yorkshire. Each agency provides all adoption services for the local authorities in their area.
