Dan Medley started this petition to Department for Education and

I lived in the care system for 8 year. We are set up for failure. Over 4,717 children are currently in the system. We don't get the support we are offered or the care and understanding we need. For example, why can a gp refer a child to CAMHS and get a letter in the post in a week; yet if a social worker makes the referal it can take up to 6 months.

Children in the system can develop mental health difficulties which is leading to the drug and alcohol abuse. 

Why should social services be allowed to let this happen?

Quite frankly, it should not happen! If nothing is done about it things will get worse and more and more young people will turn to this.

We suffer abuse and neglect in the system and this isn't okay.

We suffer from unstablilty and we are unable to find our feet. 

We suffer in school because of the lack of support for us. 

Should this really be allowed to continue.

Theres young people out there who can't talk about their feelings because they have never had someone stay long enough to be able to trust them. 

It's time to fix our system once and for all. For the better. And for the future of our society.
