Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

Over the last year, Action for Children have supported 1,967 young people to remain in safe, secure and appropriate housing. Take a look at Jack's story below.

Jack, 17 from Bolton, may be on the brink of a football career, but life growing up wasn’t always so easy. Jack's parents both struggled with alcohol and heroin addictions, but it was only after his mum’s death in 2014 that he made his own decision to move in to foster care to get the love and support he needed.

Action For Children were able to support Jack through the transition between living with his uncle and moving into foster care. He says "Having people from Action For Children around me was a massive help. I’ve been with my foster family for nearly four years. I've started to feel part of a normal family."

Jack is currently studying Sport at College and has just secured a position to play at a semi-professional level for Bolton Wanderers next season.
