Emma educates foster carers on LGBT issues
mma, who’s from Somerset, is calling for foster carers to be better educated on LGBT issues, so they can be more understanding if they find themselves looking after a young person who is lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender.
Emma teamed up with a charity called Fixers and Somerset County Council to develop a leaflet and training to give carers better guidance on how to support LGBT young people.
Watch the short film she appeared in for Fixers and ITV Westcountry to promote her story:
