Ageing Out of the Care System

Ageing Out of the Care System

Due to his mother’s mental health and physical health issues, Billy spent many years in foster care, starting at a very young age.

This is his story.

‘I was really worried I might have ended up on the streets.’

When he turned 18, his care options were very limited and Billy came close to ending up on the streets.

Thankfully The KEY Project got involved and helped Billy find accommodation and guided him through the process of paying bills and rent.

He finally had some stability and was able to move forward with his life.


For the month of December, we’re bringing you a series of videos from Homeless Stories, a film initiative that tells the stories of the men and women who end up homeless and the charities that support them.

We spoke to the founders, Glenn and Dave, to learn more.
