If only that team manager new my journey and my passion as a result of my journey in care.
NOW....it’s just fuel to my fire to change mindsets and perceptions through educating, engaging and inspiring.
Children FEEL every word...they are particularly sensitive due to the worlds they have lived...choose your language wisely and kindly.

Our 2018 16+ Northamptonshire project was a success! Thank you to everyone at Right Resolution who made it happen and a massive thank you to all our young people who came along and hopefully had a great time!
Project funded by Northamptonshire Community Foundation
2017 was a very busy year! Baking, car boots, bowling, ice skating, stalls and much much more!
In April 2017 Right Resolution was awarded funding from the Northamptonshire Community Foundation through the Queens Institute.
The funding was to run a project for one year which encouraged young people creating, organising and implementing initiatives and events to help raise funds. The funds were then spent on social activities for the young people.
Young people also had the opportunity to gain a Level 1 award called the Volunteer Passport. This covers areas such as health and safety, equality and diversity, first aid and working with people.
Over the year approximately £500 was raised which meant lots of exciting opportunities for social activities!

A few pictures to sum up what we got up to during our summer celebrations in 2017!
We are constantly keeping an eye out for any information that may affect young people leaving care. Here are some of the articles we've come across.
