'There's a stereotype it's just trouble we make'
We brought together a group of young people in care (11+ years old) to share their experience of being fostered. Connor Allen, the former Welsh Children’s Poet Laureate was also invited to help guide our young people in writing a poem about their experiences. There are many misconceptions about young people in care and the aim of the workshop was to allow their voices to be heard.
