Find out more about our work in this region

We currently have groups in Exeter and Gloucestershire working to put fostering and adoption on the church’s agenda, as well as a Home for Good Local Movement in Bath. We are working with churches across Bristol to pilot a model we hope to be replicable across the UK.

We have agreements and work closely with Bristol City Council, Wiltshire Council, Torbay Council and Bath and North East Somerset Council (though our local movement).

Clare is excited to coordinate Home for Good’s work throughout South West England. Having been a teacher for more than 20 years she is all too aware of the specific needs of looked after and care experienced children and their families. She longs for the Church in the South West to recognise its role in caring for the most vulnerable children in our communities.
