There is a rising number of children in care. On the 31st of March 2016, it was recorded that there were 70,440 children in the care of local authorities in England.

A lot of children in care may not have had the opportunity or positive role models to teach them the essential life skills they need to achieve their full potential in life.

More than 50% of children in care are aged 13 and over. The teenage years are extremely important for self development and is a critical time to gather the skills to thrive in society.
