Advocacy

Our approach to advocacy

We engage with policy-shapers, decision-makers and influencers, advocating for looked after children and those who care for them. We are faith-rooted and child-focused; believing we have a mandate to advocate with children and families, not just for them. In every aspect of our advocacy work, we seek to be a source of innovative solutions to society’s challenges.

Knowledge

We are constantly engaging with the Home for Good family of children, carers, parents and professionals, to understand the issues they face and their ideas for change.

Influence

Our relationships with influencers including politicians, civil servants and journalists enable us to share positive stories and credible policy and practice solutions.

Campaigns

As we identify innovative solutions, we join or spearhead campaigns or catalyse action to achieve tangible change.
