This week (24-28 October) is National Care Leavers Week 2022!
It's a chance to celebrate the successes of care leavers, raise awareness of the journeys they undertake and campaign for better futures.
Organisations across the UK are doing their bit to support this campaign.
Locally, Barnardos | Plymouth Care Journeys have loads of events you can get involved with. Including a drop-in event with loads of helpful and fun stalls today and tomorrow at the Climate Hub in Plymouth City Centre (PL1 1RJ). There will be loads of pre-loved clothes, free toiletries and pizza! Pop along and get involved. Keep up to date by clicking here.
Plymouth City Council also want to use this week to make sure that all care experienced young people in Plymouth who need support get it, so if you are under 25 and care experienced and want to access support, just visit their website.
The charity BECOME also have lots of resources on their website, including real stories, information on the 'Care Cliff' and guides on how to support care experienced people. Click here to find out more.
If you'd like someone to talk to, pop in and see the Skills Launchpad team at Barclays in Plymouth City Centre, Monday - Thursday between 12-3pm.
