40th Birthday Year – 2018

40 Years of Who Cares? Scotland

40 Acts of Love, for 40 years of us! We will be celebrating throughout 2018.

Who Cares? Scotland has been supporting Care Experienced people with advocacy, and helping them speak out and create positive change, for 40 years.  Find out more about our history here.

This year, we want to see our communities stand up and show their Care Experienced friends and neighbours how much they mean to them. It doesn’t need to be a huge undertaking, just a token of your time to help make Scotland a place where Who Cares? Scotland’s members of Care Experienced people are loved, celebrated and shown the respect and equality they deserve.

By committing to 40 Acts of  Love you will help us achieve our new strategic vision – a lifetime of equality, respect and love for care experienced people.

Choose your 40 Acts of Love

As part of our Springtime 40 Acts of Love options, we will be asking friends to support us on our Kiltwalking and Summer Camp 2018 activities and our #LifetimeOfEqualities campaign.

Great! Just click this link to register.

This year, we are asking walkers to ‘Walk with love, for love’ on behalf of our Care Experienced members.  We will be supporting walkers to understand why love matters to our members, and what we are doing to secure a lifetime of love for all care experienced people.  To support walkers to do this we will be:

  • Issuing walkers with an exclusive Walking with Love, For Love t-shirt.
  • Issuing walkers with a Walking with Love, for Love information pack.
  • Covering the cost of registration.
