Pledge to LISTEN to young people in care
"We aren't in care because we are bad. We are in care because our mums and dads can't look after us properly".
Venture Trust are delighted to have joined Who Cares? Scotland's 'Pledge to Listen' campaign, directly tackling the stigma and discrimination which children and young people in care and care leavers face. Though our work with young people in care on our Inspiring Young Futures programme, we're all too aware of the issues facing these young people, and hope that you'll join us and 'Pledge to Listen' to young people in care. We're delighted that some of Venture Trust's participants have been able to add their voices to the campaign - sharing their real stories and experiences of the care system.
We hope that, by supporting Who Cares? Scotland with this initiative, more young people will have a positive journey through - and out of - the care system. Watch this video for more information about what you can do to support and promote the campaign.
