Become a Peer Support Volunteer

Sign up to become a Peer Support Volunteer

Peer Support Volunteers are people who care deeply about finding a home for every child who needs one through fostering, adoption and supported lodgings, and about seeing families well supported on their journey. 

At Home for Good, we know just how valuable peer support is. We hear time and again the impact that connecting with others who ‘get it’ can have; knowing others who understand the journey you’re on, having somewhere to turn for prayer or simply having the opportunity to share a coffee and chat together. 

Home for Good is passionate about equipping and supporting Peer Support Volunteers across the UK to stand alongside those who love and are raising children with experience of care. 

Peer Support Volunteers focus their efforts in one or more of the following areas:

1. As Enquiry Peer Support Volunteers, offering peer support to people enquiring and journeying with Home for Good as they explore fostering, adoption or supported lodgings. 

2. As Peer Support Group Volunteers, facilitating a Home for Good peer support group in their local community, with their church or online for current foster carers, adoptive parents or supported lodgings hosts. 

Peer Support Volunteers may also have the opportunity to:

  • Practically support Home for Good by sharing their experience at online information events or a Foundations course. You can find out more on our website and in the Volunteer Resource Hub. 
  • Work alongside their Regional or Nation Lead or Local Coordinator to explore the need and opportunities for peer support locally, and where appropriate, engage more people in their support group. 

You may already be running a peer support group and wish for this to become a Home for Good group. Please get in contact as we would love to explore this with you.

I would like to find out what is
going on in my area
