Making a Success of It
Contrary to some of the public and media opinions, it is not necessarily so that young people who have been Looked After by the Local Authority are always disadvantaged and fail to achieve.
The three young persons featured in this DVD production, like many other young people, all had their own individual needs but in recognising the support and opportunities being made available to them, set about achieving their aspirations and personal goals.
“I want to make something out of myself and prove people wrong”
“I didn’t want to go into care but then I realised that the people were only there to help. Foster care is a refuge with lots of opportunities”.
“Maybe a lot of young people in care feel that they can’t achieve but this is wrong. They can achieve just as much”.
