Stories and recollections
The first day I came into care I was confused and I didn't know what is going to happen because I was 17. But now I find it helpful.
This was a good decision for me because I don't have any family in the UK.
I am proud of myself for everything I have done since I have been in care.
I didn't go to school but at the time I came into care I have been sent to college to do ESOL, numeracy and ICT. At this time I couldn't speak English or write. It was sad and hard but now I can speak, listen, communicate and write as well. I chose my first course and now I am on the second course.
I have already made more friends and I am very excited for the help I get. Coming into care made me a sociable person.
How I feel about being in care
- Love it
- Saved from being a scruff / criminal
- Feel part of the family
- Better lifestyle
- Not as many fight
- Get all the things I dreamed about as a kid
- Feel looked after
- Made better friends
- Don't get in as much trouble at school.
