Yesterday everything looked like it was going one way.
Today, himself took himself off to see housing. I'm not sure what he was expecting, I suspect he thought he could move and have less expectations placed on him than he has here. Maybe he has been reading too much Daily Mail and UKIP propaganda. Whatever they offered him, seems like doing what he had to do to stay was the better option.
He came from the housing office and sorted himself out some volunteer work within the hour and he has now got a progression course for next academic year in college.
Whether this will keep the leaving care team happy, after all they were looking at a big drop in the cost of supporting him, remains to be seen.
The emails I sent might be their worst case outcome - have to carry on supporting him.
