For 25 years we have been the leading charity for children in care and young care leavers in England. Find out more here.

Apex Hotels are in UK city centres, including London, Edinburgh, Dundee, and Glasgow. They got in touch with Become (then The Who Cares? Trust), after Helen Sherwood saw a BBC documentary featuring one of the young people we have worked closely with.

We are working in partnership with Apex to address the problems faced by young people leaving who are searching for employment. 

Apex Hotels have delivered a superb tailor-made programme for care-experienced young people which their HR team planned, prepared and delivered. It involved CV and interview skills workshops, followed by work experience placements for young people. Two of those young people now have paid, permanent employment with Apex – for one of them, Fatouma, it’s the first job she’s ever had.
