  • Can bring a message to your church

  • Host the 'Faith & Fostering Podcast

  • Provide no obligation online information sessions

  • Oversee a growing nationwide network of peer-support communities, designed to ‘be the village’ for children in care

Fostering Hope

Fostering Hope exists to reflect Christ's love by supporting at-risk children and those who care for them. They do this by:

  • Raising awareness about the number of children growing up in out of home care and shortage of foster/kinship carers

  • Recruiting new carers

  • Offering ongoing pastoral care and support to carers and their families.

The Homeward Project

The Homeward Project provides a bridge between the local Church and the child protection system, equipping you to build a ministry of Out-of-Home Care where everyone has role to play.

You Parties

You Parties is an easy-to-use resource for local churches to help them partner with foster families & celebrate their foster children. Our party-throwing kits are designed specially to communicate love and value to children in out-of-home care by celebrating them in unique and fun ways.
