Yorkshire and Humber


Home for Good has a lot of support from church leaders in Yorkshire and the Humber. In York, church leaders are supportive of Home for Good and partner with us to think about how they can collectively and individually put fostering and adoption on the Church's agenda. 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. In Leeds there is a group meeting every six weeks for foster carers and adopters to pray together and in Bradford foster carers and adopters meet weekly for a coffee.

Our partners in the area are Adoption Matters (adoption) and Caritas Care (concurrent planning) and The Foster Care Cooperative (fostering).
