The Story

walking the walk

This is the story of the Relationships Matter project which ran from April 2014 to April 2016. It was facilitated by Iriss and led by the Relationships Matter Collective, a group of inspirational practitioners and young people who were brave enough to challenge, and confident enough to promote, continued relationships between practitioners and young people as they leave care.

This story provides an overview of the rationale, activity and learning from those who piloted new ideas as part of the project. It complements this website an includes signposts to the site for more in-depth detail.
