There are several conferences and events taking place over the Autumn to give care leavers a voice, so we’re sharing them with you.

The Care Leavers’ Association is holding a conference and its Annual General Meeting (AGM) on 18th November. If you’d like to get involved, you can reach them here.

The CLA is also hosting an event called, “Between Care and the Criminal Justice System: setting the agenda for the next decade.” The event takes place on 27th November. If you’d like to attend, you can contact

Finally, The Child Care History Network has sent out a call for care leavers who would like to share their experiences of being in a children’s home, during a conference they are holding on 1st November. You can find out more about the event and what sharing your experience entails here. For more information, contact Darren at
