Children 6-15

When I first came into care I was scared but they made me feel safe at home and I felt part of their family. You might find it difficult to fit in but you will and people will understand if you don’t like it.

Young Parents

There’s no such thing as a perfect parent, just real ones!

We recognise that being a parent is a wonderful experience! However,  being a care leaver and a parent can bring challenges during what is supposed to be a joyful time. This page was created to share some of our care leavers’ experiences of becoming parents with the hope that it offers others some guidance and inspiration. We have some amazing young parents who are part of our Change for Care Leavers group (CfCL), they volunteered to give you their wisdom.
