Dear all local authorities, trusts, the government, social workers & personal advisors. Stop calling care experienced people 'formally relevant'!! It's so offensive, degrading, nasty, rude and wrong! We are still relevant!

Oddly Christchurch scored a point for doing a better job at directing young people to the promise section. I love that BCP doesn't just offer staying put but also a staying close scheme for those in residential homes! That is brilliant, and more places should offer it!

As a child growing up I was often told I will be dead bye 21 or that I would have a bleak future or be locked up for a long time. All untrue. I've been more successful than all of the people that said that crap to me. Never tell children they wont amount to much.

‘You need to work towards going back to foster care’: how the narrative around children’s homes harms young people Great to see the reality that children’s homes can be and often are the best homes for children to live in

3 things I missed out on as a child is LOVE, STABILITY & CONSISTENCY. These 3 things are very important but unfortunately elude many children in care. I'm also not very good with change which I probably should be having moved 51 times whilst a child in care.

Back to post code lotteries? If child wants it and Foster Carers want it then it should be made possible. Obviously it shouldn’t need to be a last minute decision. Central Government funding available for all children in care could take this issue away.

It's soul destroying for a child to hear that. It's inhumane actually. I worked with somebody one time who told me she used to say that to Dolores O Riordan from the And she regretted it every day of her life. 🤗🤗🤗🤗🤗

Feeling good again.. I've had so many more good days than bad days. I knew that I would have days where I was a little down. I think it's only natural and part of my recovery.

Exactly Wendy. Opportunities limited by geography surely can’t be OK?
