The Second Project
The second project was a booklet from young people to other young people, to offer advice, support and guidance, as well as information around commonly used care words. This booklet provided an insight into personal experiences of the young people on the board around entering the care system and being in foster care as well as being part of a family who fosters. This booklet was launched online with an event that many young people, professionals and foster carers attended including the CEO of TUSLA and the Children’s Ombudsman on February 19th to coincide with Care Day 2021.
The young people have many more ideas and plans for future projects that they look forward to sharing.
