Paul Presents | Young People & Children First
John & Patsy started Young People and Children First, having fostered over 25 children themselves. There was a family of three that came to live with them at the ages of 8, 9 and 9, and because of their unfortunate family situation, the government said they were to remain in care till they were adults which at that time was when they left school. So, in some cases that might have been 16 years of age. When the eldest was just 17, and not ready for independent living, he left their home and ended up living in various inappropriate places including hostels, where drugs and alcohol were rife. There were so many troubled young adults there and Pasty told John they had to do something about it. This is their amazing story, told by Tracy Underwood, their inspirational CEO.
