Kieran grew up as a young carer for his mum and his younger siblings. Eventually Kieran became unable to cope at home. He struggled to control his feelings and acted up at school. By the age of 13 things had become so difficult that Kieran was placed in foster care and gradually he began to change his life. He started attending The Hwb Torfaen, a project that supports NEET young people to engage them with education, develop their skills and encourage volunteering. Kieran is now in a positive place; he’s close to his family and training to become an electrician. .
