SAVE THE DATE! - CARE DAY 2018
Care Day 2018 will take place on February 16th.
Care Day is the world’s largest celebration of children and young people with care experience. Care experience includes children and young people who are or were cared for by family members with the support of social workers; by foster carers; or children and young people from children’s homes and residential units. They deserve to be celebrated, on care day, and every day.
Care Day is part of 5 Nations, 1 Voice – an alliance made up of five children’s rights charities across the U.K. and Ireland: Become in England, EPIC in Ireland, VOYPIC in Northern Ireland, Voices from Care in Wales, and Who Cares? Scotland.
Care Day 2018 is an opportunity to celebrate the rights of care experienced children and young people. The alliance wants a world where young people are proud, fulfilled, are able to thrive and achieve their dreams.
The 5 Nations, 1 Voice alliance invites every child and young person with experience of care, as well as those who care for and support these young people, to join in this day of united celebration. It is an opportunity to illustrate how care experienced people can feel different to others and why.
February 16th 2018 is the next Care Day; and we would encourage everyone to get vocal, get social, and get together in celebration of the care experienced community. More information on care day is coming soon!
For now – save the date!
