Fostering North Yorkshire – Meet Cameron, 14 – here he tells his story
Meet Cameron – he’s 14. Things aren’t good between Cameron and his parents right now. There’s been a lot of arguments and shouting going on at home for some time and his dad often loses his temper when he’s been drinking. Things at school aren’t much better.
Cameron spent the evening with his mates at the fair in town – they had a great time – but now they’ve all gone home and Cameron’s found himself in the park alone – and soon it will be dark.
There’s some older boys hanging around – he’s never been there this late. But thinking about it, he’d rather sleep out in the park than go back home.
Now that’s not right – but Cameron needs some help and support to get things back on track, both at home and at school.
