Every 15 minutes, a child or young person in the UK enters the care system.
Each child has intrinsic worth and value. Every child needs the same things to thrive: a stable place to call home, an environment that feels safe, someone they can trust who will offer care and support.
Right now, there’s an urgent need for foster carers across the UK. Nearly a quarter of young people in care are over the age of 16, yet there are limited high-quality options for accommodating these young people in safe, appropriate places. There are children waiting more than 18 months for an adoptive family who can offer them the care they need – this includes children who are over the age of five, children who are Black, children with a disability and children in a sibling group.
Home for Good has a bold vision to find a home for every child who needs one in the UK through fostering, adoption and supported lodgings for teenagers. We believe the Church is brilliantly placed to make a transformational difference as we seek justice, practice welcome and hospitality and care in community.
We inspire and equip individuals, families and communities across the country to play their part to ensure that every child experiences the stability, care and sense of belonging they deserve. Through our resources, content and training packages, we practically equip individuals and families as they explore fostering, adoption or supported lodgings for teenagers. We mobilise churches and communities to welcome, understand and support families who love and raise children with lived experience of care.
At Home for Good, we’re driven by a vision: that together we can find a home for every child who needs one. What part could you play?
