In 2013, churches in Southampton set out to find 40 new foster placements for the City Council. In one year, more than 70 people applied to become foster carers.
We are now working with groups, churches and local authorities in towns and cities across the UK to run similar campaigns. Local movements aim to raise the profile of fostering and adoption in churches, encourage people to foster or adopt, equip churches to support families that foster and adopt, and create support networks for foster carers and adoptive parents.
This is beginning to happen in towns and cities all over the country. Each local movement has its own character, but they all have the same central values and vision – to find families for all the children who need them.
