Chloe came to Ryancare with her 9 month old twins for an assessment of her ability to look after her children and to escape from a violent relationship.

Chloe had a lot of angry feelings towards professionals and this sometimes meant people believed she would not be able to meet her children’s needs.

Chloe lived in one of our foster homes that specialises in working with Parents and Children, where extra training and support is given to the foster carer to make sure the parents are supported and encouraged and the children are safe and well cared for.

Chloe took this opportunity with energy and focus and after an extended period of 9 months, left the foster home, with the agreement of the Court, to live in her own flat. Ryancare provided support to her and even paid for her and her children to have a holiday, something she had never been able to do before.

Chloe has now lived independently for 2 years and is a far more confident and calm person with an improving level of self esteem. She has remained in contact with the foster carer and has also written a report for Ofsted on her positive experiences at Ryancare and how her life and those of her children have changed for the better.

We are very proud of Chloe and her achievements.
