Northern Ireland


Read our latest news update from Northern Ireland here.

The work of Home for Good continues to grow in Northern Ireland as new opportunities with individuals and organisations arise and the conversation around fostering and adoption becomes further embedded within churches.

The Champion network in Northern Ireland is growing and active, with passionate people volunteering within their own churches to ensure that caring for vulnerable children is on the agenda and that their church is a welcoming place for foster and adoptive families. There are also several peer-to-peer support groups across Northern Ireland that enable foster and adoptive families to connect.

Home for Good works with the HSCNI Foster Care, which covers all five Trust areas, as we look to find a home for every child who needs one. There is also ongoing activity within the Southern Trust as a result of local churches wanting to make a difference.

Throughout 2021 and 2022 Home for Good will be partnering with UCB Ireland to raise awareness of the need for more foster carers across Ireland and inspire individuals, families, and churches to play their part in caring for vulnerable children across the island of Ireland.

Judith Dawson

Project Worker: Southern Trust

Judith was inspired to consider the role she and her family could play in caring for vulnerable children after hearing the founder of Home for Good share at a Christian conference. She now seeks to inspire churches across the Southern Trust area to consider their part in caring for vulnerable children and young people by being a welcoming and supportive community.  Judith's role also involves journeying with those exploring fostering or adoption. Having welcomed children into her own home through fostering and adoption she is passionate about supporting and empowering others as they embark on this incredible adventure.
