About Peter

Experienced Social Worker, Foster Carer & Bold Leap Founder

Peter Nduwayesu Buturo is the dynamic, passionate and experienced founder of Bold Leap.

His mission is to inspire a generation of young people to reach their potential and become the best version of themselves.

At the age of 16, Peter suffered the loss of his mother, uncle and grandparents. This devastation led him to reach crisis point as he battled with suicide. At the age of 17, Peter navigated life without parents in the UK. Fortunately, Peter found refuge and a connection with Christianity, and this built his faith to believe that he was not alone. The impossible became possible for Peter as he pursued the art of never giving up.

We're Changing the Narrative

He graduated from Birmingham City University in 2011 as a qualified social worker. He became highly sought-after for his ability to motivate and engage in direct work with young people. Peter has overcome great adversity, and his empathy, compassion and personal journey are inspiring to the young people he has worked with.

Peter’s social work career has provided him with extensive industry experience and an intricate understanding of the care system. He has diverse experience as a foster carer, social worker and residential support worker and has worked within several teams including Looked After Children, Leaving Care, Youth Offending, Unaccompanied Asylum Seeking Child (UASC), Safeguarding, Adoption and Care Proceedings.

As a social worker, Peter has placed young people in care into supported accommodation homes. Unfortunately, he noticed that some of the companies did not provide a holistic, supportive, consistent setting for young people and is committed to making this possible.

Peter is what sets Bold Leap apart from other childrens residential and supported accommodation companies. His journey, professional experience and understanding of what young people need to develop, grow and succeed allows Bold Leap to provide comprehensive services to young people. Equally, Peter understands the importance and application of best practice, service standards and expectations when working with young people in care.

The journey began working in a children’s home as a residential child worker. Then it continued to placing children in a residential home as a social worker. The journey has not stopped as he is now opening his own children’s home. What a journey and full circle. This is his purpose, and he is living it. Peter Buturo is connected and invested to the children’s social care industry.
