In partnership with Kent County Council, we would like to give all young people who are Kent care leavers a Christmas present in 2020.
For many care leavers, it’s their first Christmas on their own. Not with a foster family nor with a family of their own. With your help, we can give a present to reassure these young people that they are not alone.
Young adults who have left or are leaving foster care can become extremely isolated. Living independently in all types of accommodation can be painfully difficult.
Let a young adult be reminded they are not alone this Christmas.
