S2E5 - Conversations at Christmas

Three care leavers share their experiences of Christmas and their advice for the upcoming festive season

In this episode we chat to three care leavers about the upcoming festive season, and what this time of the year is like for them. Elle, Jojo and David discuss dealing with Christmas wobbles and feelings of grief and loss, and they share their advice on how to navigate what can often be a tricky time for care leavers.

Wherever you are this Christmas, we hope you're able to enjoy it as much as you can, and we wish you a happy and healthy New Year.

The IMO Podcast is a series of open and honest conversations with care leavers, shining a light on their experiences. Each episode we invite someone who’s been in care to talk about anything they like. It’s an opportunity to hear the voices of people who often don’t get the chance to tell their stories, and it’s a chance to inspire and encourage others in similar situations. You can find out more about the series at www.imohub.org.uk/podcast.
