Alan Charter

Global Children’s Forum, Network Facilitator, & Home for Good, Chair of Trustees

Alan Charter is a children's champion, foster carer and adoption advocate. He longs to see children thrive in families and as part of the family of God, pursuing that as Facilitator for the Global Children’ Forum, a partnering network of over 100 organisations, who have come together around children and the gospel. As a connector by nature, Alan serves the UK network Children Matter! and continues a 30+ year involvement with Scripture Union. He is husband to Claire and together they have four children, the youngest of whom is adopted, and, as foster carers, Alan and Claire have welcomed various children into their home. Alan was part of the conversation that led to, shaped, and birthed Home for Good, and continues to serve as Chair of Trustees. He is passionate about the vision – particularly about helping churches do more to wrap around adopters and carers as they support the most vulnerable in our society.
