National Care Leaver Week 2019

This week is all about National Care Leaver’s Week 2019 ran by IMO. The week runs from 28th October until 3rd of November, the campaign has been designed to help provide a voice platform for teenagers in care and for care leavers.

This week is to help share amazing stories, experiences and achievements from care leaver’s.  The theme for this year is future aspirations, where care leaver’s see themselves in the future and what they’d like to achieve as well as sharing about current successes which will help them achieve their ambitions and dreams.

One of Sunbeam Fostering Agencies care leaver’s shares her outstanding, inspiring story in the video below.

Thank you to all our foster carers for making such a positive difference to children’s and young peoples lives.

Testimonials

This job is probably one of my favourites. Every day is different, every day has new challenges and every day has new rewards. It’s not always easy but each challenge you go through with the child bonds you and makes you both stronger for each other.

We have been fostering for the last 8 years and feel proud to be a part of the Sunbeam family. At the beginning, we thought it’s a tough job, but the skills to foster initial training and the whole assessment procedure to become a carer was interesting, and it gave us both a broad insight into both the tough and rewarding side of what we were likely to encounter.

“Fostering is a rewarding experience as it allows you to actually make a difference for a child/young person. I feel happy being able to make such a difference whether it is for one day or several years.”

“When they told me that I had been approved for fostering, well I just cried. I was an emotional wreck and was so happy that I just couldn’t hold back my very, very, happy tears.”
