We raise awareness and inspire people to find homes for every child who needs one


I've decided to retire when I reach my 60th birthday, and invest my time and energy supporting  vulnerable children in the UK. 

Andrea and I were inspired to become foster carers by the book "Home for Good" by Krish Kandiah. It would be fitting if any gift for my birthday/retirement were directed to the charity of the same name that Krish established.

Fostering has opened my eyes to needs in the care system. Every fifteen minutes in the UK, a child will come into care. Many will have suffered neglect or abuse, all will experience trauma and loss. Each one deserves a home where they will be loved, nurtured and enabled to thrive.

When I'm retired, I want to spend more time caring for children in our own home. But I also want to explore how I can advocate for improvements in the care system.

Home for Good's vision is a home for every child who needs one. We know that for children in care, it’s crucial to find the right placement at the right time - whether that’s a short-term foster placement in an emergency, a long-term foster placement or a new adoptive family. Currently, this isn’t always possible: there is an urgent need for thousands of foster families. 3,000 children are waiting for adoption. Home for Good exists to help make sure every child can have a stable, loving home where they can thrive.
