Care Experienced Conference
A group of young people and pure insight team members with lived experience, attended the first care exp led National conference of its kind in England last week.
It was a fantastic opportunity to share experiences of multi generational care exp people and work collectively to improve services for care leavers of the future.
The group took part in a series of work shops looking at the emotional and practical needs of care leavers and the longer term consequence of being in care.
The day offered an opportunity to speak directly to influential decision makers within the NHS and Education, and contribute to a wider research on this often invisible community group.
Young people who attended reported that they had really enjoyed being part of the day and thanked organisers for the opportunity to attend.
