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. Kieran has been helped by The Hwb Torfaen, a project that supports NEET young people. The Hwb worked with him to develop his skills and enabled him to engage with education. He’s now at college training to become an electrician. .
