There are over 1000 children in care in Liverpool, and each year the City Council aims to recruit 100 new carers. In 2014 Home for Good: Liverpool was launched with the aim of finding 30 families for children in the city who desperately need a home. Read about how Home for Good: Liverpool presented city leaders with a portrait of 30 keys to illustrate the launch of a commitment to recruit 30 new foster carers in Liverpool in the Liverpool Express.
Home for Good: Liverpool is a group of Christian foster carers and adopters in Liverpool who want to encourage local churches to encourage and support families to foster and adopt.
We are keen to equip and encourage local churches with the assistance and support of the national campaign. As a group we would be more than willing to assist in any way- and Home for Good, the national charity, is producing resources to help. If you would like us to speak at your service, please get in touch.
We organise information meetings for families interested in finding out more at different venues throughout the city. If you would like us to run one in your community, please contact us.
We have an informal support group where we meet regularly to encourage and pray for each other. Contact Phil using the form below
