Earlier this year we asked people to send in their own story or poem. We asked you to write about anything in relation to being in care, leaving care or living as a post care adult. The stories were all amazing. We hope they they are as inspiring to you as they were to us. There is great benefit in writing, shairing and reading stories. Please take care with the stories and treat them with respect. There are still more to be uploaded. If you want to send in a story send it to Info@careleavers.com. If you feel moved to comment on the stories you can do this via the blog on the web page.
