Quotes from Young people on the project

The HP gives me the chance to learn new skills, meet new people and I know I don’t have to do everything on my own we can help each other
The best thing about the HP is all the support I get... It's good to be part of a group as we bond, have a laugh but still get stuff done

I know I can stay in the HP as long as I want, it makes me less worried about not having any support in the future

It's good to meet people doing the same thing as me, we are all so different but strangely feel similar
We all help each other in the HP so no one needs to feel alone
HP is an amazing opportunity and everyone deserves the experience

Young people at the heart of decision making

Their collective views and ideas drive the development of all House Projects through the Care Leavers National Movement. They meet on a regular basis to share good practice, talk about and find solutions to any challenges they are facing and to suggest new ways of doing things. They work hard, have fun and their views make a real difference to how young people leave care and move into their own homes.

The reason I joined CLNM is to ensure all care experienced young people have a voice and that their voice is listened to
