Care Experienced Week 2022

Established in 2002, National Care Leavers week was an event created to celebrate the Care Experienced community. In 2018, we changed this to Care Experienced Week, acknowledging that Care Experienced people do not leave their experiences behind when they leave formal care. Despite the name change, the main purpose of the event remains the same.

What’s On?

We are delighted to be bringing back our big national events this year – The Love Rally and Time to Shine festival. Plus the Members’ Assembly which will see the see the launch of our new four year strategic plan.
