Sam’s Story

Sam is 16 and was neglected as a child. She’s been in Outcomes First Group care with the same foster carers for nine years. Her attendance at the time of leaving school at the end of Year 11 was over 95%, which helped towards her gaining good GCSE passes in English, maths, double science and RE. Her performance at GCSE has allowed her to pursue a career as a veterinary nurse, which she’s currently studying towards.

Sam has also been very active outside her vocation, as she’s completed her Bronze and Silver Duke of Edinburgh’s Award, as well as having taken part in the BES expedition to the Scottish Highlands for eight days. She then followed that up with a far-flung trip with BES to the Canadian Yukon.
