Come join me and 'To The Moon And Back Fostering' at Anglia Ruskin University, Cambridge 29th June

To all foster parents, social workers and those working with children, young people and families.
I'm pleased to tell you that I'll be attending a conference with 'To The Moon And Back Fostering' on 29th June at Anglia Ruskin University in Cambridge.

For those that don't already know, I started running away from home around ten years old and would walk from town to town across Staffordshire.
After going into care at eleven years old, whilst in my third foster placement I boarded a train and ran away to London when I was twelve, where I ended up living amongst other runaways, the homeless, those with addictions and prostitutes around the Whitechapel and Brick Lane area.

By the age of thirteen, I was living in cardboard boxes around Victoria station in London until making myself a semi-permanent resident of Central London's Piccadilly by sleeping in shop doorways and begging.

Of course, there's much more to my story. But you get the jist of it.

The event will take place 29th June from 5pm - 6:30pm.

Lord Ashcroft Building
Anglia Ruskin University Young Street Site Cambridge CB1 1PT

Hopefully I'll see some of you there.
Until then.
Cheerio ;)
