Leaving Care Project

In their words

Here are some of the things people have said about Barnardo's Leaving Care project

I’ve made new friends

They help me budget my money. I didn’t have to do that before

If there is an emergency or if I feel lonely at night I can phone the on-call service anytime, day or night, 365 days a year

My keyworker taught me to cook nutritious meals

I hadn’t cooked or shopped for food myself before and my project worker helped me do that

I get emotional and practical support from my keyworker

I had a problem with the person who lived in the flat upstairs. My project worker helped me to get it all sorted

I feel confident that the staff are qualified and experienced to help with my problems

It gives support

It’s great, but there are rules too

It’s like having a family. The staff are great.
