System of Silence

by Clare W
(United Kingdom)

Silenced: Let's stop it

Silenced: Let's stop it

My name is Clare. I was a victim of the system's failures and more. And abuse. All my life I went through it, been controlled. Domestic abuse of my family but because of my ADHD and learning difficulties I did not realise this. I thought it was normal but what a sad way to think at the age of 6. Growing up was so hard.


I now fight for justice for children in and out of the system because children should in no way feel like they are nothing and be silenced. We was brought into this world with a voice two speak out and legs to stand for what we believe in and too many children's lives have already been lost so it's up to us to help them and protect children.

In the Walsall foster system (UK) right now children are been silenced and mistreated and Walsall Council needs stopping. I was abused in this system too so please I'm shouting out to the world please let's stop any more silencing of children.

Thank you
Clare W
