Home for Good has a great deal of support from church leaders in Yorkshire and the Humber. Adoption Matters is one of our Pathway to Adoption partners and covers the whole region, and beyond. They have been partnering with us since the launch of our Pathway to Adoption.
In Leeds, church leaders have been meeting for the last two years, looking at how they can collectively and individually put fostering and adoption on the Church's agenda. A support group meets each month in York, and there is momentum building in Harrogate. There is a great deal of Home for Good activity in Sheffield, with a monthly coffee morning, and a great Facebook page connecting people passionate about fostering and adoption.
Our Head of Regional Development has been working in the region since September 2014, meeting with churches and champions. Our champion network includes individuals as well as groups, all working tirelessly to put fostering and adoption on the Church’s agenda.
Jen joined Home for Good in 2014. Jen is a long term foster carer and oversees all our Regional Managers and the development of our Regional work, as well as coordinating the North West champions, churches and local movements.
