Talking Hope

How the power of hope is helping Scotland’s residential child care community to change lives

“Outside in the sun, surrounded by music and laughter, a group of people gather to talk and catch up. They’re a family, meeting up every year to spend quality time together and update each other on their lives. Some introduce their partners and children; others come by themselves or bring friends along. The common ground between everyone here is that they all spent part of their childhood growing up in the same residential child care home in North Ayrshire. Every year, its former children and young people, who are now grown, many with families of their own, are invited back to meet up with each other and reconnect.”
