It was lonely growing up in care – but I felt even more isolated after I left

Recommended Posts

I was in care from the age of seven until I went to university at 18. In the months leading up to leaving care and starting university in a small coastal town in Wales, I was terrified by the prospect of having to live by myself for the first time. Some may argue that all freshers feel the dread I felt that Saturday morning in September but, unlike most people, I didn’t have parents I could call.
