At New Era Residence we believe within employing and connecting with individuals who have lived experiences, to enable us to grow and shape our services effectively. Two of our Expert by Experiencers have provided us with an overview of their experiences within the care system, which gives you an insight into however positive connections within others can shape the path for a better future.
I entered the care system at just the age of 9.
Can you imagine at the age of 9 knowing all of your family and then suddenly feeling this sense of confusion and hatred, because you could no longer see your ‘family’? Well that was how I felt.
I didn’t really like my time within the care system, I wanted to go home straight away I didn’t get on with staff or the other young people.
I was 13 years old when my mum and dad went to prison, I grew up with never knowing my mum or dad not to be high off drugs, I was at my grans a lot until she died and when went to the children’s home.
