Care Leavers Event 2013

Children’s Commissioner’s Care Leavers event

In July we held our second All Wales Care Leavers event in the Atlantic College, Llantwit Major.

A team of young people from Caerphilly’s ‘Shout Out Group’, along with the creative gurus of the Vibe Experience, were on hand to capture the day’s events in this short documentary. Have a look.

The team also viewed young people in attendance in order for us to share the realities of what it’s like for children and young people to move from being in care through to independence.

Check out the interviews to learn more! Please note that due to the background noise in this video we’ve added subtitles.

We will be looking to get out soon and meet with the regional forums of young people to include them in the planning for the next year’s event. If you have any thoughts on how next year’s event can be better please get in touch via post@childcomwales.org.uk, or tweet Keith.

Earlier this month, our Lost After Care report was published. It details the the experiences of young people leaving care and explores their concerns and the issues that affect them. You can read the report here.
