Home for Good x Festival Manchester

Working together to find a home for every child and young person who needs one in Manchester


The number of children in care across the North West region has risen by one third since 2011, with 15,000 children in the care system. A vast majority of these children experience three or more placement moves each year. As of September 2020 there were 290 children waiting for an adoptive home, with many others in need of a safe and supportive foster family. We know that around half of these children and young people have been waiting for more than 18 months already.

We believe the Church is ideally placed to ensure that every child and young person has the loving home they need. As part of Festival Manchester, Home for Good are delighted to inform, support and enable Christians who are exploring the part they can play in finding 500 foster and adoptive homes across Manchester for children and young people who need them.

Home for Good can equip churches with resources, speakers, training and up-to-date information regarding the existing need within the care system, and how the church can support, inspire and provide prospective foster and adoptive families to meet this need.
