Sayed is Shining Stars Fostering Agency’s Support and Participation Worker who is care experienced and also has experience of navigating through the asylum system as he arrived aged 14 as an unaccompanied minor from Afghanistan and was placed in care soon after. Sayed supports young people with the anxiety and frustration associated with their asylum status. Sayed is multi lingual and speaks Pashto, Dari and Farsi. Sayed provides an induction to all our newly arrived UASC’s placed with SSFA and also supports foster carers and young people when a placement is seen to be fragile and in need of extra support to help stabilise and sustain the placement.
