Find out how we are finding homes for children in Wales

We were delighted to welcome Neil Davies, our new Wales Lead, into the Home for Good team at the beginning of September. Neil has hit the ground running and has already connected with the work of Safe Families for Children in Wales, exploring ways in which we can work together for the good of vulnerable children and families.

This is the first time Home for Good has had a staff member leading the work in Wales – but this doesn’t mark the beginning of our work in the area. In 2019, Vineyard Cardiff and Home for Good put on an event which lead to the recruitment of 12 adopters and adoptive families in the community. Neil looks forward to building upon the work of those who have gone before him, and hopes to connect with agencies we’ve worked with in the past, as well as new contacts, as we seek to work together to find homes for children.

A note from Neil:

“I liken my role at the moment to a jigsaw puzzle. As I learn about and discover old relationships and new opportunities, it feels like we have lots of different puzzle pieces just waiting to be connected. It’s exciting to begin piecing things together, and to see a picture appear and a plan come together.

I love meeting up with people to let them know that Home for Good is here and ready to journey with them, and I have some big hopes and dreams for the next few months – including starting a prayer group, developing the role of local Champions, recruiting more foster carers and adopters and forming a strong network here in Wales.”

If you would like to get involved in the work of Home for Good in Wales then Neil would love to hear from you. Get in touch with him here.

What can I be praying for?

We would love you to stand with us in prayer as we continue to work to find a home for every child who needs one in Wales.

  • Pray boldly that one day in the near future, there will be no children needing foster care, adoption or supported lodgings because the Church has caught our vision of a home for every child who needs one and seen that there’s a huge part they can play.
  • Pray for Neil as he leads Home for Good’s work in Wales, that he would keep in mind the long term goals, but keep his eyes on the joy in the details of the every day – like Jesus says in Mathew 6: 25-34!
  • We’ve been so encouraged by the people and churches we’ve had the joy of connecting with so far. Please pray that our Home for Good family in Wales continues to grow!
Are there any events happening soon that I can attend?
