38,000 children will come into the care system in the UK this year.

Many of them will have to move tens of miles away from everything they know and love due to a lack of local carers. Who cares?

Every child and young person in care should be able to stay in their local area if it is safe to do so. That’s why we’re working to find local homes for local children and teenagers.

Let’s stand with them. Let’s walk with them.

Testimonials from previous years

“I loved the sense of challenge and fun.”


“I loved seeing my foster son’s fundraising target get blown out the water”


We’re inviting you to get outside this summer, either on your own or as a team and cover your chosen distance as together we walk with the children and young people in care who have been placed miles away from everything and everyone they know. You can take part on your own or as part of a team! (Don’t forget to come up with a team name!)


Register and set up your Enthuse fundraising page to receive a Home for Good pedometer and shoelaces for all participants*


Walk, skip or run a distance set by you – in a day, a week or over the whole summer (don’t make it too easy! Set yourself a challenge...)


Share your journey with friends and family so that they can sponsor you and make a difference in the lives of children in care


Take photos and videos and share them by uploading them below. You’ll be in with a chance of winning a YEARS supply of ice cream!!!**
