Our Success

We, unashamedly, celebrate every success that our carers, young adults and/or children achieve. This might be the first length of a pool, their first bike ride or a gymnastics award – we really don’t mind what it is.

This page is our chance to boast and shout from the rafters about every success or milestone that is achieved.

My love of sport by L

Only a month after moving in with my foster family they signed me up for swimming lessons as I love the water so much.  I started at stage 2 and last year progressed to stage 7.  I am hoping to join the Rookie Lifeguard programme after completing stage 7.  Becoming more confident in the water has really helped my confidence, particularly when we go boogie boarding and when I had a surf lesson.

I then started weekly badminton lessons at our local leisure centre which is an inclusive group.  I am now working towards representing Team GB in the Special Olympics which will be held in Liverpool in 2021.  Since I started secondary school, I have the opportunity to access after school clubs.  I am currently doing football but may try other things too.

I also enjoy cycling, I enjoy taking my new bike on local cycle trails.  In the last half term we all cycled part of The Camel Trail.  We enjoyed lunch and an ice cream before returning – we deserved it!  I think sport is really good for you as it makes you feel better. Don’t be afraid to give it a go and never give up!

L then went on to say a quote that he hears his fostering family “Nan” say:

“Good, better, best. Never let it rest. Until your good is better and your better is best.”
