The IMO Podcast is a series of open and honest conversations with care leavers. We want to give care experienced young people a place to tell their stories. Each episode we invite someone who has 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 people in similar situations.
