Short Stories: Contributions from Foster Carers


Over the next few months we want to build a collection of short stories, artwork and pictures. Contribute yours here and help us share the diversity of experience of Covid-19 at this important time in our history.

With your help, we can build a portfolio of stories and artwork and films that reflect your experiences of Corvid-19. Your contribution can involve a piece of creative work, an image, a positive experience or a challenging experience.

We hope these stories will tell us something about people’s experiences of the different types of support, relationships, activities, approaches or actions and impact these have had for children living in care and care leavers during this crisis.

Please submit your entry online via the contribution form at the bottom of this page.
