Walk with me

Your summer fundraising walking challenge to help find local homes for local children.

Sign up now

On average, children in care are moved 18+ miles because there are not enough local carers*. This isn’t right. Every child and young person in care should be able to stay in their local area if it’s safe for them to do so. We’re working to find local homes for local children and teenagers so that no one is put in this position.

Let’s stand with them. Let’s walk with them.

Walk with me

We're inviting you to get outside this summer, on your own or with your friends, family or community, and cover 18 miles as together we 'walk with' the children in care who have been placed miles from everything and everyone they know.

1. Register and set up your fundraising page to receive a Home for Good pedometer and shoelaces for all participants.

2. Walk, skip, scoot or roll 18 miles or more – in a day, a week or over the whole summer!

3. Share your journey with friends and family so that they can sponsor you and make a difference in the lives of children in care.

4. Take a photo* and share it with us by tagging us on social media or upload your photo to the webpage. You’ll be in with a chance to WIN a microscooter + safety set OR a month’s supply of ice cream.**

*Not all children can have their photo taken so we want you to #shareyourshoelaces. Send your photos and videos of your bright green laces as you clock up those 18 miles! Why not get creative by capturing a funny scene or see if you can get any landmarks in the shot.

**Terms and conditions apply. See here for details.
