Link-Ups are for care-experienced young people aged 18 - 27


Link-Ups used to be a virtual hang out for care-experienced young people.

Since then, we have developed this into Link-Up Reloaded: three in-person Link-Ups per year, for care-experienced young people aged 18 – 27, where care-experienced young people can come together to chat, develop a sense of community, and have fun together.

We play lots of games, get competitive with quizzes, debate various topics and sometimes cook or craft together. We have Link-Up Specials, too, which have included a Pancake Day special, ‘Elf Yourself’ Christmas games, a poetry workshop and more.

Our Link-Up Speakers’ Corners also welcome care-experienced speakers who share their life experiences and have an open discussion.

Once a month you will receive an update and survey for the upcoming Link Up which will inform plans for the next in-person Link Up and to help to decide the focus of the virtual Link-Up Special.

Link-Up is run by Charlene.

She is often joined by other friendly members of our Care Advice team – Rasheeda and Olu.

3x per a year Link-Up Reloaded is hosted in person (December, April and July).

Check our Instagram to see upcoming Link-Ups.
