Home for Good – a follow up to Abi Pictchford’s appeal for foster carers

17 May 2020

During last week’s Church at Home service Abi Pitchford shared with us some information about fostering and told us of how a dedicated project is aiming to provide a safe and loving home to every child in the UK care system. Below is a message from Safi Newton, Home for Good’s project worker for north and west and Yorkshire. And then below that is a link to a Home for Good video in which founding director Chris Kandiah of the scheme explains why the current lockdown situation is putting added strain on this area of need. 

Thank you so much to those of you who have shared the Home for Good information and video over the past week.  We are seeing lots of visits to our social media posts and webpage and today we have been able to connect our first enquirer to Leeds City Council Fostering Team.  You may have seen in the media that this week and next are NATIONAL FOSTERING FORTNIGHT so it seems like the perfect time to be drawing people’s attention to the current need locally.
