The Scotland Lead is responsible for shaping and leading Home for Good’s work within the Scottish context. Central to this role is the responsibility of initiating, coordinating and overseeing Home for Good’s engagement with churches across Scotland, with an initial emphasis on the Central Belt. This includes building a network of volunteers, helping local churches to engage with the work and vision of Home for Good and inspiring and supporting Christians in their exploration of adoption, fostering and supported lodgings. Raising the profile and reach of Home for Good into new areas is imperative, with potential for developing contract agreements with local authorities and other fostering/adoption agencies to help sustain and grow Home for Good’s reach and impact in Scotland. Working with a wide range of churches and statutory agencies, the postholder will expand the missional aims of Home for Good, by helping to find a home for every child who needs one through fostering, adoption and supported lodgings.

The post-holder will be expected to model these core values and help shape team life. Therefore, this post is subject to an Occupational Requirement that the postholder be a committed Christian under Part 1 of Schedule 9 to the Equality Act 2010.
