Our Sky's the Limit Design Brief 

A new vision of support for care-experienced young adults #EndTheCareCliff

What would it look like if care didn’t leave you?

During National Care Leavers’ Week 2021, we launched a new group project – Sky’s the Limit – to redesign ‘leaving care’ and offer a fresh and aspirational vision for how the care system should be supporting care-experienced young adults.

We decided to think BIG and ask:

What if the whole concept of ‘leaving care’ didn’t even exist? What would be there instead?

Our Sky’s the Limit project provided a blank canvas for 11 young careexperienced people to share their knowledge, memories, hopes and dreams and create a vision where care didn’t abruptly end but continued to help them reach their potential and lead happy, successful lives.

We want to say a huge thank you to our design group:

Alice, Emily, George, Henri, Jada, Jasmine, Jordan, Kim, Louis, Marthad, Becca, Sam, and Samuel.

Thank you for using your experience and expertise to create change.

We also want to say a huge thank you to the Esmée Fairbairn Foundation for supporting the project.
