Some of the children we work with have started out life on a very rocky path and their journeys can be shocking and very unsettling to hear.
This poem recounts a very turbulent trajectory of events that could have resulted in a different outcome to that described if not for a social work intervention. The outcome was, fortunately, favourable for the young person, though the impact of such turbulence has had a lasting effect.
