COMFORT CASES: Radlett charity on a mission to provide support for young people in care

 Published on: 19th March 2022   |   By: Lizzie Ellis   |   Category: Uncategorized

A Shenley based charity that helps children moving into foster care is helping people in Radlett and beyond thanks to the generous help of the community.

Comfort Cases is a charity with a mission to help young people in care more around the foster system with dignity and hope and supports children and young people in Hertfordshire and the UK.

Radlett resident Sarah Laster took on the role of CEO in November 2021, having co-founded the award-winning You Donate, We Deliver, to help frontline NHS staff during the pandemic. She was motivated to continue to help others through a mission like Comfort Cases.

Sarah explained: “We feel that children who find themselves in the system are often victims of circumstance, can have low self-esteem, have in some cases experienced some form of trauma and even if it is a small measure, it is vital to remove once and for all the indignity of having to transport whatever they have in bin bags.”

Comfort Cases has been driven by community support including students volunteering as part of their Duke of Edinburgh Award and local schools Haberdashers Aske School for Girls and Yavneh College.

Sarah added: “With the awful escalating situation in Ukraine, we are liaising with social workers who look after Unaccompanied Asylum Seeker and Refugee Children across the UK to offer our support as they prepare to receive thousands of Ukrainian refugees.”
