Southern HSC Trust

We work with the Southern Trust and with local churches to find and support foster families.

Home for Good has a commissioning agreement with the Southern Health & Social Care Trust (‘Southern Trust’), which is one of the five HSC Trusts in Northern Ireland. The partnership with Southern Trust has been active since 2019 with an emphasis on the recruitment and retention of foster care. It has been very positive and fruitful relationship marked by close collaboration, mutual learning and, ultimately, the finding and support of foster families in the area.

The Southern Trust area encompasses the five council areas of Newry & Mourne, Banbridge, Armagh, Craigavon and Dungannon. Find out more about the Southern Trust.

Fostering and Adoption recruitment within the five HSC Trusts in Northern Ireland is managed centrally as part of a Northern-wide approach. Those who want to find out more should visit the HSC NI Adoption & Foster Care website or call 0800 0720 137.

Why we recommend the Southern HSC Trust

The Southern Trust is a trusted partner with a genuine commitment to innovation, excellence, quality support of carers and continuous improvement of their services.
There is an established, positive partnership between the Southern Trust and Home for Good, characterised by strong collaboration, shared learning and mutual support. Home for Good has a voice in to the recruitment and retention approaches and activities of the Trust.
The Southern Trust recognise the potential of local churches and Christian individuals to play an active role in providing and sustaining foster placements – and they have demonstrated an openness to engage positively with churches and those of the Christian faith.
Over the past five years, we’ve had very positive feedback from many individuals in the Home for Good networks who have fostered or adopted through the Southern Trust.

We would encourage anyone who is keen to explore fostering, adoption or supported lodgings in Northern Ireland to connect with the Home for Good enquiry team. They can answer questions, offer advice and walk with you on this journey. Our team has a great relationship with the Southern Trust – and with the other HSC Trusts in Northern Ireland – and can help connect you in with the relevant Trust if and when appropriate.
