This crisis has shone a new light on the issues children and young people in and leaving care face but we also know that there’s some great work continuing and we hope to highlight this through the #WeLove campaign.
The REAL Toolkit – Relationships, Empathy and Love
The toolkit will be guide for young people who are leaving care and importantly, it will also be guidance for those working in care on how to promote relationships. Our vision is that every young person in care and leaving care will have positive meaningful relationships.
Funded by The Esmée Fairbairn Foundation.
Funded by the Life Changes Trust, Project Return will bring together young people and practitioners to aid our understanding of trauma and trauma-informed practice, and to explore the supportive environments we know are required to support recovery and the development of relationships.
With funding from the Life Changes Trust and in collaboration with Children and Young People's Centre for Justice (CYCJ), we listen to the voice of care and justice-experienced young people so that their views are given the due weight and attention they deserve.
