Leicestershire Cares believes in world where no one is left behind and that is why we work with some of the most vulnerable but inspiring young people in Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland.

On Friday 21 February, we will be joining the rest of the world celebrating the lives and experiences of our care experienced young people.

Social media campaign

We will be running social media campaign: “I want a care system that…” and “I’m different because…” to highlight the issues care experienced young people face, but also the aspirations they have for the care system and their lives.

Follow us on Twitter:@LeicsCares #CareDay20

Follow us in Insagram: leicscares

Twitter Q&A

We will also be handing our Twitter account over to our young people at 1pm on the day for a lunchtime Q&A, where you can ask them questions about what it is like to be care experienced.

Follow us on Twitter:@LeicsCares and follow the #LCCETalk

Supporting care-experienced young people across Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland.

You can also help ensure care-experienced young people are heard by capturing and sharing what they imagine for a care system. Remember to use the hashtags #CareDay20 and #Reimagining.
