Your life story - care leavers

We would like all children and young people who have been in care to know and understand their “life story”.  As far as possible this would include where you were born, who is in your family, what you were like when you were little, and what your family was like. It might also explain why you came into care, where you have lived and the reasons that any big decisions were made.

Hopefully these will be things that your social worker, foster carers and maybe family have spoken to you about throughout your time in care. But if not, or you have questions, your social worker or personal advisor will be able to work with you to help you understand your life story and to get any support you need because of your experiences.
