Children are not things to be molded but are people to be unfolded.

Looked After Children deserve a better outcome in life

Lets change the way Children Services operate, by offering a new approach to the care we provide to young people in the care system.

What is Looked After Child Limited

From the UK. this website shares Life Story Work, Blog Posts About Mental Health and Life Events Our Main Author is Li Jean-Luc Harris who founded the site as a brand. which spun of from his original blog where he used to write and publish his life stories. Although he wanted to build a central place that could offer advice for both Care Workers, but also Children In Care, and care leavers. As well as being able to share stories and create courses for looked after children.

But we are more then just that. Check out our Better Care Goal

Chronology / Life Story Work With Looked After Child

We Believe that every Story is Important, it not only reinforces the story that the Looked After Child has had. to show them how far they have come. but it also gives professionals so much information on how they can improve their work. you see; everyone works differently. one method dose not work for everyone so its important that we adapt and work with different methods. essentially growing a toolkit that can work for everyone

i am a product of generational trauma

By |July 2, 2022|Adolescence development Story, Child Development Story, Generational trauma, Life Story, Mental Health Stories, Real Stories, story|

but I was determined to break the cycle of generational trauma As soon as I was placed into my second foster care placement. I had to readjust to life as everything  I had thought to be in a "normal" family was challenged. my second foster carers did an amazing job of showing me how a family should function and that constant chaotic situations and violence was not normal.

The events before I was going into care It was January 2008, not long after Christmas. At the time, I was currently living with my Father. My Brother DH,AA and I were not the greatest of behaved kids if we are honest. We both had very complex needs and needed some help with our behavioural/emotional issues. Anyway, we had pushed our father way too far one weekend, and caused some issues with my dad and his current partner (at the time) Carol, and they decided to give up caring for us. Not knowing what to do, my dad sent DH [...]

Trying To Patent A Wireless Computer (With ElectroMagnetic Waves Or Inferred) Aged 13/14 but failing

By |January 21, 2019|Life Story, Projects Story, story|

When I was 13 or 14 not precisely sure I was in school and interested in technology. when it struck to me of the idea of building a desktop computer that didn't have to be plugged in. At first, I thought it would work well with infrared. This was scrapped almost instantly as it did not transfer enough power to keep the computer running. Instead, I opted in the design for Bluetooth principles for mice, keyboards and speakers etc. after lots of research I found out about ElectroMagnetic Waves, and this was perfect for transfering electric from one device to [...]
