Fostering motivates A-Level Results

Can you be a Fostering Hero and help our Young People Succeed?

Super heroes may be fictional but we believe the real heroes are our Carers and the Young People that pack up their world to commence a new period in their lives, be it for a short term or long term.

Every Saturday we celebrate our Young People by sharing their achievements or positive experiences on our Social Media platforms. #ShoutOutSaturday allows us to remind our Young People that it’s important to remember to be proud of your achievements no matter how big or small they are. Small achievements are a reminder that you are still improving, even if thing’s haven’t worked out exactly the way you planned.

Let’s look at some inspiring former Looked-After-Children who have made a difference to the world with their achievements.

Our childhoods mould our beliefs, thoughts and perspectives on life and sometimes experiencing hard times can have a major effect on us. But it’s so important to use experiences good or bad to cultivate and empower a positive mindset to achieve any dreams and ambitions you have.
