Children's and Youth Leader Training

“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 is for anyone involved in children’s or youth ministry in any capacity, whether paid or voluntary:

  • 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

Over the next year, Home for Good wants to train a thousand leaders across hundreds of churches. We will offer this free of charge to leaders, so that as many children as possible can benefit. If you are able to give a gift to help train leaders to welcome and support fostered and adopted children, please give here.
