Home for Good is delighted to announce the appointment of Simon Blake as the new permanent Chair of Trustees. A Chartered Accountant by profession, Simon has decades of experience in corporate financial management and providing strategic expertise to small and medium-sized enterprises and charities.

As the outgoing Chair at Stewardship and an adoptive parent to two teenage sons, Simon brings a wealth of strategic insight and personal passion for ensuring that every child and young person in the care system is provided with the home that they need. Speaking about his appointment, Simon shared:

“I am delighted to be appointed Chair of Trustees. As parents of two adopted boys and considering fostering as well, my wife and I have been delighted to support Home for Good since it was founded and I am honoured to have the opportunity to work with the team in taking Home for Good into its next phase of growth”.

“Here at Home for Good, we see the incredible value that Simon will bring and are so grateful that he is taking up this position. I’d like to extend my personal thanks to Anna for the wisdom, experience and momentum she has brought as interim Chair over the last few months. We look forward to working closely with Simon and the Board. I am confident that their expertise and oversight will enable us to go further in finding a home for every child who needs one”.
