South West


The South West is an exciting region for Home for Good. There is a wide range of champions across the whole region. There are several active groups, passionate about recruitment of foster carers and adopters, and peer-led support including an official Home for Good Local Movement in Bath.

We are working with churches across the Bristol and the City Council over 2019 to pilot a model we hope to be replicable across the UK. Elsewhere we have groups in Exeter, Gloucestershire and elsewhere working to put fostering and adoption on the church’s agenda.

Alongside partnering closely with Bristol City Council and Bath and North East Somerset Council (though our local movement) we also have partnerships with not-for-profit independent fostering agencies, The Foster Care Cooperative and Action for Children.

We have worked with voluntary adoption agency Families for Children.

Clare Walker

Regional Manager: South West

Clare is excited to coordinate Home for Good’s work throughout South West England. Having been a teacher for more than 20 years she is all too aware of the specific needs of looked after and care experienced children and their families. She longs for the Church in the South West to recognise its role in caring for the most vulnerable children in our communities.
