Sponsor me as I cook a fabulous three course meal at every St Christopher's children's home across London.

To mark St Christopher's 150th birthday I am setting out to raise money to support care leavers. Leaving care is often described by care leavers as like falling off the edge of a cliff. All the support they had can disappear overnight.

I'm a proud dad of two and I want to make sure that care leavers get the same strong start in life that we want for our biological children. I am raising money to help ensure care leavers can thrive and become confident, happy and secure young adults.

We at St Christopher's want to make sure care leavers are fully supported as they become young adults. I am raising money to fund support for care leavers to help them to have the practical and emotional skills to thrive as young adults and to ensure that St Christopher's is able to be there for them as they take these vital steps into adulthood. This project will provide a tailored approach for each young person including areas like employability skills, access to education skills sessions, assertiveness and resilience training sessions, cooking sessions, budgeting and financial management and AQA accreditation of their skills.

“I don’t know where I would be without them. I have not taken college as seriously as I should have and St Christopher’s have helped me with not giving up, helping me believe I can still get the work done, and now I have and I have passed. I don’t know where I would be or what I would have been doing if it hadn’t been for St Christopher’s giving me hope and keeping me going.” Young person at St Christopher’s
