Find out how we are finding homes for children in Scotland

Our work engaging with Church of Scotland Guilds across the country is dialling down as their session ends. This marks the end of the first year in our three-year partnership with them as they continue to fundraise and raise awareness of the work of Home for Good. We want to thank all the Guilds in Scotland for the work they have been doing to wave the Home for Good banner high!

We have just had the Riding Lights Theatre Company tour of My Place come to Scotland. Thank you to all who have attended the three Scotland venues in Dundee, Edinburgh and Glasgow. We hope you all had a great time!

We're currently strengthening our relationship with The Promise, Scotland. You may have seen in the news and on our social media that the England Care Review was published last month. Back in 2020, the Scottish Government concluded their independent care review and named it The Promise. As we look to extend our influence in Scotland, we're developing relationships with The Promise, working together to #keepthepromise in Scotland and working towards their current 21-24 implementation plan. You can find out more about the Scotland Independent Care Review here.

We're starting up regular Champions Zoom calls again! After the success of our last call a short while ago, we'll be setting a regular time for Champions to come together over Zoom, pray with one another, and ream together as we look ahead to the future of Home for Good in Scotland. If you're a Champion based in Scotland, keep your eyes peeled for another invite to a future Zoom call for next month.

And, big news, we're recruiting in Scotland! We are looking for a Scotland (North & Islands) Lead. Find out more about the role here. The closing date for this role is midnight on Sunday 26 June 2022.

What can I be praying for?

We would love you to stand with us in prayer as we continue to work to find a home for every child who needs one in Scotland.

  • Please pray for the future of our work in Scotland as we seek to grow our connections and influence.
  • Please pray for our Champions. Pray for a real sense of community as we start our regular calls again. Pray that God will help them to dream big about our work in Scotland and continue to give them the confidence to speak up on behalf of children and young people with care experience.
  • Please pray for strengthening of ties with church leaders and communities across Scotland. We hope to be able to build relationships with church leaders and communities in key cities across all of Scotland moving forward, particularly in Glasgow as they occupy almost one third of all looked after children within Scotland.
Are there any events happening soon that I can attend?
