IMO (in my opinion’) exists to celebrate the achievements of teens in care and care leavers and to share their stories, experiences and advice with others in a similar situation. We aim to challenge perceptions and raise the aspirations of young people with care experience.
We’re asking teens in care and care leavers to write a message to their future selves – ‘Dear future me’, and we want to collect responses from as many people with care experience as possible. The messages will remain anonymous and can be anything you want to say, for example sharing career, life, travel, personal and/or other ambitions and aspirations for the future. Or you could use the postcards to offer advice and words of encouragement to your future self.
To take part, simply email [email protected] to request a pack of blank postcards and a stamped addressed envelope to return them in.
The campaign is open to individuals, children in care councils, care leaver groups, children’s homes and other organisations who work with teens in care and care leavers in the UK. We can’t wait to share your messages!
