If you’re in care or a care leaver and you have a story to tell, advice to share, or something that you want to shout about – do it on IMO!

You can send us blogs, vlogs, podcasts, articles, art, poems, short stories – the list is endless.

Fill in this form and send it, along with your content, to [email protected]. If you’re sending a large file – for example a video or several photographs – it’s best to use a file transfer service like WeTransfer (it’s free).

What’s in it for me?

IMO gives you the space to tell the world your story, to help others in a similar situation, and to work towards making real changes to the lives of children in care and care leavers.

We want all teenagers and care leavers to be able to safely share their stories through IMO. That’s why we’ll never publish content using your real name, and we’ll make sure that you’re completely anonymous to protect your identity (unless you’re over 16 and you choose otherwise).

If you are over 16 and you choose to submit content to us in which you are identifiable, we’ll need you to sign another consent form before we can publish it.

Not sure what to create?

If you’d like to make stuff for us, but you’re not sure where to start, we’ve got loads of ideas – just get in touch: [email protected]

Let’s work together to show what being in care is really like.
