Home for Good
Every day 50 children are taken into care in the UK. As a result, there are currently 4,000 children waiting for adoption and an urgent need for 9,000 more foster families. We believe the Church is ideally placed to provide families for children who need one and to support families that foster or adopt.
Home for Good is charity that exists to inspire and equip the church to make this vision a reality. We would love for you to get involved. For more information about Home for Good visit our website www.homeforgood.org.uk
Become a champion
Home for Good is active throughout the country via our network of champions who are passionate about fostering and adoption. We equip our champions to help them put fostering and adoption on the agenda of their church and set up peer-to-peer support groups.

Become a Home for Good church
We want churches throughout the UK to stand with us and say to the Government that we are working together to find a home for every child who needs one. We also want to equip these churches to become welcoming and supportive places for families that foster and adopt. To find out more about being a Home for Good Church:
