Childhood is short. It is the foundation of our self-esteem and sets the tone for our adult life. Young people need to feel loved, secure and safe. They need to push boundaries knowing that someone will catch them if they make a mistake. They need to know that there are people who will never give up on them.
Many of the young people we work with don’t have support networks. They’re being forced to grow up too quickly. They find themselves at important life stages, like leaving home or becoming a parent, earlier than their peers.
We want young people to fulfil their potential. The most vulnerable need early help to support their move into adulthood. They deserve a care system designed to promote recovery from harm and improve wellbeing. They want the confidence and money skills they need to live independently, without the threat of homelessness or bad debt.
