Campaign: To challenge the negative perceptions of young people in care

I was seven years old when I first went into care.

 

I've noticed that people tend to assume that if you’ve been in care it’s your fault.

 

There’s a stigma and misconception surrounding young people brought up in the care system.

 

If you do something wrong or behave badly, it’s seen as a direct result of you being a looked-after kid.

 

With Fixers help I’m challenging the negative perceptions of young people in care.

 

I want to show that young people in the care system shouldn’t be judged and should be treated well.
