  • Hear from some of our young people

    "When I first came in the house I felt sad because I used to live in a foster family and didn't want to move out. After I was here for a while I saw the other young people and the mother of the house then I felt very happy as it was like a family to me."

    "I didn't know where I was going, but I met good people and they explained everything to me. In my country people thought bad things would happen to me. But actually there are normal people like me and they have been really good to me."

    "When I first came in the house I felt very happy because I met all my friends. I knew everyone in the house as I had made friends with everyone here before I moved here. And also I knew the houseparent which made life easy for me."

    "When I first came here I didn't know what was going to happen to me, but here I have a home and I have food, clothes and my own pocket money."

    "When I first came in the house, I was very afraid, not knowing what was happening. The next day I met everyone in the house and they welcomed me, talked to me and I was happy seeing the whole family together. I didn't speak English but I managed to communicate with the other young people in the house and the houseparent which felt good."
