Our vision is a home for every child who needs one.
As we head toward this goal, this is what we want to see:
The UK Church knowing that there are children waiting to be adopted and a desperate need for more foster families – particularly older children, children from ethnic minorities, sibling groups and children with additional needs – and are part of the solution.
The myths surrounding adoption and fostering that exist, particularly among Christians, being dispelled, and churches having a better understanding of the assessment process and being supportive of social workers.
More Christians choosing to adopt and foster, and are able to find an agency or local authority to adopt or foster with, and are connected with children who are waiting.
The church being equipped to be a welcoming place, and a supportive community, for families who foster or adopt.
People who foster and adopt being easily able to access a network of ‘soft’ support and knowing where they can turn to for professional support.
Agencies and local authorities being better equipped to work with churches and assessing social workers having a better understanding of faith so can ask better questions during the assessment process.
