We’re delighted to have now welcomed more partners on board, which means even more children across the UK now have the chance to benefit from the Virtual Memory Box.
Redcar & Cleveland Borough Council is now rolling out the Virtual Memory Box to over 400 young people in their care.
Debbie Malone, Service Manager Supporting Children Through Care, Redcar & Cleveland Borough Council said, “A child’s understanding of their life journey is so important for them and helps to develop identity and sense of self. This tool will keep everything in one place and, should really support our children and young people to reflect on the key moments and events that are meaningful to them. It will also be a place to keep precious memories. We know that photos, books and precious items can get easily lost or damaged and the Virtual Memory Box will give a secure, accessible place to store these instead.
“We want to give every child In our care the chance to have the best possible chance of a happy and healthy life and believe the Virtual Memory Box will help us do this by providing a vital tool to support our life story work.”
Chris Brock, MD, Virtual Memory Box says, “Our aim is to make life easier for our partners in children’s social care – their jobs are already challenging and difficult enough without something else adding to that pressure. That is why we work so closely to understand the issues and come up with solutions that make it as simple as possible for the Virtual Memory Box to be implemented and used to help both children in care and those who look after them.
“We are so pleased to now have thousands of children and young people – and social workers and carers – across the country able to benefit from the Virtual Memory Box. We know the huge positive impact this is going to have on the lives of some of the most vulnerable in our society, and their carers.”
