Kick the stereotype!

Wakefield Children in Care Council want to help break down the barriers young people face - stereotypes of children in care are a challenge.


We have lots of successful young people in care in Wakefield and those that have left care to be successful adults. 


Why not share your story of your journey through care or tell us of an achievement you are proud of. If you write the story anonymously (give yourself a make-believe name in the story) then we can publish it on our website. A great way to inspire others to achieve.


Here are some famous people that grew up in care that you may have heard of? They had successful careers and left a lasting impact on society - keep aiming high.
