  • Bio

Sarah Johal is the National Adoption Strategic Lead working with Regional Adoption Agencies. Prior to taking up this post in September 2021, Sarah was the Head of One Adoption West Yorkshire, the first Regional Adoption Agency (RAA) in England. Sarah has over 30 years’ experience as a social worker and has worked for Leeds City Council as Head of Service for Looked After Children developing fostering, adoption and kinship services.
Sarah is married with two children, now adults and is a firm believer in restorative practice and developing services based on research and evidence of what works well. Key to this approach is hearing from those with lived experience so they can influence decisions and services that affect their lives.
