This special podcast was released in celebration of Care Day. Care Day originated in Scotland in 2015 and takes place on the third Friday in February It is now recognised internationally as an opportunity to celebrate the lives and voices of Care Experienced people.
This year the theme for Care Day was around community.
In the week leading up to Care Day we held a digital event for Care Experienced young people and adults from across the 5 nations, where welcomed participants to our digital village and explored community through the themes of education, transitions, accessing information, and recreation. We’d like to thank everyone who attended that event and shared their stories with us. There was such range of ages and experiences, which made for rich conversations.
Hear to what Care Experienced people from across the UK and Ireland had to say about the importance of community and what professionals and the public can do to help them succeed within their communities.
