Find out how we are finding homes for children in Central and East England

Sharon Partridge-Underwood share updates, encouragement and prayer points related to Home for Good’s work across the Central and East of England.


Sharon's reflection

What a wonderful few months it has been in the Central and East of England furthering the work of Home for Good. I have recently been reading The Jewish Jesus book by David Hoffbrand and have loved to see how the old and new testaments connect with prophecy and the fulfilment of God’s love and His heart for His people. When we are able to connect on a deeper level with God’s masterplan, it can help bring a clearer perspective of how God would have us love and care for those around us.


Recent highlights

This term has seen conversations with Milton Keynes, Norfolk and West Midlands fostering and/or adoption teams to think about the development of Church Engagement in these areas, to increase Enquiries and also consider building a greater support resource for carers.


Ongoing partnerships

We continue to work in close partnership with PACT. We are currently planning a joint event for July where we will host an information event at one of our Home for Good Churches in Chalfont St Peter with Champion Steve and PACT attending.


Working with our volunteers

In March, the Central and East volunteers meet on Zoom for our termly call. This was a great time of meeting together and discussing what is happening in the regions through our volunteers.

Also, Volunteers Shona and Fran have recently helped on the Foundations Course and did a great job of journeying with those considering fostering, adoption and supported lodgings.

Who Cares Campaign

Speaking Engagements have continued at various churches, conferences and festivals. A particular highlight has to be launching our Who Cares Campaign at Spring Harvest. With 38,000 expected to come into care in the next 12 months… who cares? You can find out more about joining in this wonderful campaign here: Home For Good | Who Cares Our prayer at Home for Good is to see 38,000 pledge to pray for each child.
