A Somerset teenager is calling for foster carers to be better trained on how to look after lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender (LGBT) young people.
In our regular update from Fixers, the campaign that gives young people a voice, we bring you the story of 18-year-old Emma Willoughby, who realised she was bisexual while in foster care.
She found the views of her conservative foster parents upsetting and struggled to open up to them about her sexuality. She wants foster parents to have more information on these issues, and has created a suggestion booklet with the Fixers campaign.
She will also be holding workshops with new foster carers through the Somerset Foster team, who are supporting the campaign.
