Teens set up website for others in care

by Tom Savvides

A group of teenagers who have spent most of their childhoods in care have helped to set up a new website offering career advice, shopping tips and information on health for their peers. They want others to learn from their experiences.

There are three and a half thousand children in care in Kent. The council believes an interactive website is one way of giving them help and support. In his report about 'Kent Cares Town' , Tom Savvides spoke to Theresa Jackson, Sophia Dunstan, David Tadese; and Tony Doran from Kent County Council.
