Every 15 minutes in the UK, a child will come into care. In the London Borough of Bexley there are currently 234 children in in care, and that number continues to rise.

Many will have suffered neglect or abuse, all will experience trauma and loss. Each one deserves a home where they will be loved, nurtured and enabled to thrive, whether that’s through short-term or long-term foster care, with a new adoptive family, or through supported lodgings.

We at Home for Good believe the Church is ideally placed to ensure that every child and young person has the loving home they need. Foster carers provide a welcoming and caring environment for children and young people where they can reach their full potential. We are delighted to be working with London Borough of Bexley Council to help find more foster carers in the area, so that every child is welcomed into the home and family that is right for them.

“I’ve loved speaking to church communities in the area and getting to know existing foster carers in Bexley, as well as building relationships with those who are considering opening up their home to a child or young person. If you’re interested in learning more, I would love to connect with you. Contact our enquiry line using the form below, invite a Home for Good speaker to you church, or take a look at our resources. Together we can find a home for every child who needs one!”
