Foster child ‘T’ talks about her time with St John’s Ambulance Cadets for Child Safety Week.
Martin and Julie my foster carers encouraged me to join St Johns Ambulance Cadets after trying various sporty activities which isn’t really me 🙂
Although at first I was really, really nervous and didn’t think I would enjoy it I did.
It is a small group and I was allowed to do as much as I felt confident with. My instructor is nice and friendly and very patient. The uniform is green and froglike but ok.
I have passed my Life Skills Level 1 and working towards my level 2. We get go to events as support such carnivals, rugby matches and shows.
I have learnt basic life skills and what to do in an emergency, how to do resuscitation and more, which is important for everyone to know!
Before I came into foster care I felt unable to do anything about my life but this has given me confidence and power and will help me in the future.
