Hi I am Andrew Ash
and I am originally from West Yorkshire and now I live in East Yorkshire And I live On the Yorkshire coast.
I was in the care system at the age of eight to the age of 16. when I left I had no one to turn to And I was now on my own And I had no formal qualifications To get a job The care system juice doesn't seem to want to teach you anything. in fact they didn't even teach you the exams never mind doing them so I was never asked to sit the exams.
I finally took my first exam at 19 when I sat the exam in college. I was studying camera and video editing and radio production city and Guilds level one I started college at 18 and past the course with flying colours. To be fair the college gave me because of my disabilities a special package and a private tutor and a notetaker, Plus extra time to do the course and Sit the exam In.
I then did some work on the hospital radio for a couple of hours a week which I really enjoyed doing and then I went to London where I went to naypic - National Association of Young People in Care - as I had been a victim of abuse from the age of 8 to 20 in and out of The Care System And now I am 45 and thanks to the National Association of young people in care I was able to turn my life round.
Today I am a full-time carer for the disabled. And I still stand up for the abused in carer and still doing things on it as well as doing things for the disabled and I still campaign when I can.
at home in Yorkshire UK
