NLCBF/YPBMF Care Leavers Celebration Event
October 28 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm
Our 6th annual event for National Care Leavers Week is co-designed and delivered by YPBMF (care experienced) Champions and NLCBF Care Experienced Sessional Worker with the NLCBF Team.
This year we are focussing on a range of topics including mental health and wellbeing, LGBTQ+, the use of Language and as usual awards & celebration of achievements, positive messages and showcasing of projects involving care experienced individuals from across England and Northern Ireland.
We are trying something new and holding the event in two cities (Bristol & Leeds) whilst also broadcasting to attendees online… it’s a challenge but if anyone can do it our care experienced team can!!!
Who the event is for
The event is for care experienced individuals from over 120 local authorities who are members of the forum. Each local authority can send 2 care experienced individuals and 1 supporting professional. We expect to have 120 attendees (75% care experienced) from up to 45 local authorities.
How to access it
The event is booked through the NLCBF Website by the local authority and booking confirmations are sent out with details about the event – either ‘in person’ event detail or ‘online event’ joining instructions. members.leavingcare.org/landing/
