London has seen a gradual growth in Home for Good activity over the last year. Home for Good has partnered with local authorities and Trusts to run fostering recruitment campaigns. We are currently working with Kingston and Richmond (Achieving for Children). PACT is one of our Pathway to Adoption partners and covers the whole of London. PACT has partnered with us since our the launch of our Pathway to Adoption in 2014.
Our London regional manager has been working in the region since September 2015, meeting with churches and champions. Our champion network includes individuals as well as groups, all working tirelessly to put fostering and adoption on the Church’s agenda. There are a number of Home for Good churches across London, across a range of denominations, and we regularly run information events and borough-specific gatherings.
Jo has worked as a social worker primarily within the looked after children service, fostering and adoption. Jo oversees all our regional work in London, coordinating champions, churches and events in the region.
