Celebrating Care Day 2022

Posted on 18th February 2022 by

Care Day 2022 (18th February) is here and we wanted to take this opportunity to join in with celebrating the rights of children and young people with experience of care.

This year’s theme “it takes a village” focuses on how different people in communities can have a positive influence on children and young people; and how important these relationships are in shaping the lives of our care experienced community.

There have been significant people in all of our lives who have had a really big impact on our outlook and sense of self-worth. They can be relatives, teachers, coaches, neighbours and many more – all of whom come from our community or “village”.

Most of the time we don’t even realise the significant and direct impact we ourselves can have on others. Even the simple acts of listening, encouraging, or understanding can have profound, direct, and lifelong effects.

This year EPIC (Empowering People in Care) are asking people to be, or realise their potential to be, a #CareAware champion and ally.
