What is Care Day?
According to the UN: “International days are occasions to educate the general public on issues of concern, to mobilise political will and resources to address global problems, and to celebrate and reinforce achievements of humanity.”
Care Day is the world’s biggest celebration of people with care experience. The term “Care Experienced” refers to anyone who has been or is currently in care. Care Day has been going since 2016 and originated in Scotland to mark the date the Children & Young People (Scotland) 2014 Act passed. This act contained some very important legislation for Care Experienced people, such as the increase of the age young people can stay in care till 21 and the increase of the age young people can access aftercare support to 25. Now Care Day has evolved into an official occasion to help support and promote people from the Care Experienced community.
An exciting new venue in Glasgow that will be shared at registration.
