Her experience of Care is broadly a positive one, although she’s been told she wasn’t the easiest teenager to work with! Her experience involved many placements and many dramas. At the age of thirty, Jenny felt ready to deal with the demons of her childhood and engaged with intensive therapy, where she sought recovery for a dependency issue.
Jenny is very proud to refer to herself as a Care Leaver in recovery. Jenny’s mission is to reach out to Care Leavers and associated professionals to inspire hope and to remind us that all care leavers have ability. We need to support them to believe in themselves and achieve their potential.
