My Stories

We believe that there is no one better to tell us about their needs and care experiences than the young people living them every day.

We want to know what you think, and we want to help you to get your voice heard. Loudly and proudly.

What does Coram Voice mean to you?

Hear from children and young people in care and care leavers about their experiences with Coram Voice and what the organisation means to them.

Kerrie’s Story

Kerrie Portman, who is involved with Coram Voice as a Creative, produced a fantastic article in the Guardian talking about her experiences in care and as a care leaver.

The article focuses on how Kerrie was never given a clear explanation of the reasons why she was in care, echoing the frustrations felt by many children and young people and the long term impact that can have.

The article also talks about findings from Bright Spots, highlighting the programme’s work around the lack of understanding children, young people and care leavers have around their time in care.
