In this series we’re looking at what needs to change in the Care system, and how change can be made. We hear from young people who have been through the care system, those that work in it, and policymakers – all of whom are trying to make change.
“Just being able to talk to someone and being able to hang out with someone, can have such a big effect, especially for someone who is care experienced because they may not have those connections”
Em from project Acorn.
In episode two we hear from a group of young people as they come up with a plan and put it into action. The group are on a mission to address loneliness and isolation amongst care experienced young people in Plymouth.
They come up with the idea of a summer social group packed with fun activities. We follow the project from beginning to end, the ups and downs, and the outcomes.
