Suffolk

Welcome to Home for Good: Suffolk!

Christian adopters and foster carers in Suffolk are joining together as Home for Good: Suffolk. We are a local group championing the vision and values of the national Home for Good initiative who want to see the Church playing its part in recruiting foster carers and adopters, equipping churches to support families that foster and adopt, and encouraging peer support.

Adoptive parents and foster carers first heard about ‘Home for Good’ in June 2013, at an area-wide gathering. Following this event, several carers in Ipswich began to meet, and three churches - St Augustine’s, Colchester Road Baptist Church and Burlington Road Baptist Church – took part in Adoption Sunday 2013.

The vision of a county-wide movement was born in Spring 2014, when Home for Good began to link adoptive parents and carers with others in Sudbury and Stowmarket. We  were passionate to see more churches in Suffolk to play their part in promoting the need for adopters and foster carers, and to help connect and build peer support for those caring for vulnerable children. Home for Good: Suffolk was launched in June 2014, with a concert.
