Children's and Youth Leader Training

“I found the whole evening very moving and encouraging and really helped us as a team to think of the needs of ALL our children.”

“This was the best training I have been to – thank you Home for Good!”

“Very good training session. Helped to give a better understanding of supporting children in different situations.”


of participants in our pilot training said that they would recommend the session to other leaders

As Christian families step forward to foster or adopt, we want to ensure our churches are safe and welcoming for all children and young people. Our children’s and youth leader training equips and resources leaders to better understand the needs of children who have been adopted or are in foster care, enabling them to carry out effective, practical and appropriate ministry.

This training focuses on the following areas:

  • To understand why children are in care
  • To begin to understand how early life experiences can impact the child or young person, and how the outworking of these can affect behaviour
  • To understand how to best support families who foster or adopt
  • To begin to explore how the Church can play a significant role in supporting families, so adopted and fostered children and young people can thrive within the church environment

The training is 2.5 hours long and led by two experienced members of the Home for Good team. The training is a mix of theory and practice with plenty of space made within the evening to consider the implications and next steps for your context. It would be ideal for whole teams to come along together.

Currently, due to the pandemic, we are not able to run this training. We hope to release some dates for future training very soon.
