Self-care comes in many shapes and sizes, whether its eating what you love, face timing a friend, banging on a face mask listening to your favourite record, going through your skincare routine or lounging in bed til 12 in the afternoon just do it and do NOT feel guilty about it.
Getting involved with Drive Forward gave me more confidence, showed me how to approach people and put me in a good mind set to progress with my life.
Why we can't sit still...
2000 young people leave the London care system, ill-equipped for the challenges that await them. They lack the skills, confidence and support to successfully manage their transition into adulthood and independence.
60% of young people experience homelessness within 6 moths of leaving care.
40% of care leavers are not in employment, education or training, so-called NEETs.
50% of care-experienced people suffer from mental ill-health.
Abuse & Neglect
60% of children going into care do so due to severe neglect and abuse.
