SMTIM’s aim at the start of this project was to challenge the stigma of Children in Care whilst Raising Aspirations through sharing positive messages.

With the support of some fantastic role models we have succeeded in sharing positive stories to inspire others and challenge adults.

We realise that no two stories are the same and that is why we are still asking for care leavers to come forward and share their successes with us.

You can get involved and share-your-story by answering some questions and emailing your answers along with a photo of yourself to

This is definitely not the end for the project and we hope that you can all share in its growth!

“We are the proof that success is a possibility”
