We are very concerned for vulnerable children right now.
In the middle of a coronavirus pandemic, we are being told to stay home, and stay safe.
But for too many children at risk, home is not a safe place to be.
Some of them face the terrifying combination of being trapped indoors in chaotic and dangerous situations, whilst being invisible from the teachers and social workers who would usually see them regularly.
40,000 children were expected to come into care this year, mainly because of abuse or neglect. Sadly, because of coronavirus and the pressure that lockdown is putting on vulnerable families, that number will be even higher.
That’s going to put huge strain on a system that is already struggling to find the foster carers needed to care for our nation’s most vulnerable children.
Please support our emergency crowdfunder today.
Home for Good began because we realised that if just one new family from every church stepped forward to foster or adopt, then we could meet the entire need in the system.
With all the uncertainty right now, many people are putting big life decisions on hold.
But this is not the time to step back. This is the time for the Church to step forward, and do what it has always done during a plague or pandemic – rush to care for the most vulnerable.
In this season, Home for Good is needed more than ever to inspire and support Christians to welcome vulnerable children into their homes through fostering.
But we need your help.
We are hoping to raise £25,000 towards our coronavirus crowdfunder that will allow us to:
- Continue delivering vital services like online events and our enquiry line;
- Find the carers that are urgently needed;
- Support fostering and adoptive families at this difficult time.
Please give whatever you can today.
You may be stuck at home, feeling helpless. But today you really can help.
