Welcome to Care Day 2018!

On this page you will find everything you need to know to get involved with this year’s Care Day celebrations on Friday 16 February.

Care Day is a joint initiative between children’s charities across the whole of the UK under the 5 Nations 1 Voice alliance. Become, the national charity for children and young people in care and young care leavers is leading this annual event in England, alongside Who Cares? ScotlandVOYPIC in Northern Ireland, EPIC in Ireland and Voices from Care in Wales.

This Care Day, Friday 16 February, is an opportunity to reflect on the rights of each child, and how we all work to defend and enhance them. It is also a time to celebrate the achievements of children and young people in care as well as raise awareness of some of the issues they may encounter in childhood and beyond. That’s why throughout Care Day we will be hearing directly from young people on social media about their experiences of care. Follow us on FacebookTwitter and Instagram to hear what they have to say.

 

We need your help to make Care Day a success!
