Home For Good

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.

Here in Reading, a local movement has been established to work in partnership with Reading Christian Network and Reading Borough Council to find 50 families from across our town in the next three years to care for children through fostering or adoption. In December 2014, Heather Bull from Home For Good Reading visited All Nations Christian Centre to give more information about this local initiative.
