Global Care Family Gathering – 27 October 2018

The first ever international gathering of Care Experienced people

In 2012, twenty-one Care Experienced people gave evidence in the Scottish Parliament. They spoke about life before, during and after care. In turn, the first piece of legislation to meaningfully engage and reflect the needs of Care Experienced people was created. Since then, Care Experienced people have been at the forefront of Scottish politics and are driving change.

Who Cares? Scotland recognises that Care Experienced people are speaking out across Scotland, the UK and the World. The momentum for change has never felt stronger.

We have been challenged by our members to share our learning, to give a platform to new voices and to create a space where the global Care Experienced movement can be realised.

That’s why, on Saturday 27th of October, we are facilitating the first annual Global Care Family Gathering in Glasgow.

In the coming weeks, we will open registration and make an open call for Care Experienced speakers and Care Experienced workshop hosts.

This Gathering will be like no other. It will be curated and delivered entirely by Care Experienced people. It will support Care Experienced people, from across the world, to connect over their shared identity. And it will set out a global ambition for change beyond borders.

Care Experienced people are about to make history.
