HOME FOR GOOD

Every day more than 50 children are taken into care in the UK. They are removed from chaotic, traumatic, abusive, neglectful or desperate situations. Some of them need a home in an emergency. Some of them need a temporary home until they can return to their families. Some of them need an occasional home to give their families a break. Some of them need a permanent home with a new forever family.

The Church is uniquely placed to offer its help to meet this need – both in terms of finding families to foster or adopt and providing an excellent community of support to wrap around those who do.

Home for Good is a charity which aims to make adoption and fostering a significant part of the life and ministry of the Church in the UK. Working together with Care for the Family and the Churches’ Child Protection Advisory Service (CCPAS) to ensure excellence in all that we do, we are dedicated to inspiring, equipping and coordinating the network of local movements, churches and individuals who are making the Home for Good vision a reality. We raise awareness of the need for foster and adoptive parents, encouraging families to provide loving homes for the children in care, and equipping the Church to offer welcoming communities for them.

If you are interested find out more on their website: http://www.homeforgood.org.uk/ or call the Home for Good Team 0300 001 0995.

We are looking for a NLC representative who would attend just 3 or 4 Home for Good local meetings a year on our behalf and feedback information to the church.
