Headlines about young people with lived experience of care focus on the negatives. We’re told they’re trouble-makers, don’t do well at school, live their lives on benefits and getting mixed up in crime. Does that truly reflect young people’s experiences? Or, does each young person, with support, have the power to set their own path? A trio of young people from VOYPIC, the charity for children and young people with lived experience of care in Northern Ireland, discuss their experiences of care, and where their path is leading, hearing from care experienced adults about the routes they have taken. They are determined to be more than a statistic.
