This week is National Care Experienced Week, an opportunity to acknowledge and celebrate the successes of care experienced young people in the UK. Each year, around 30,000 children and young people leave care in England. Most young people who leave care to live independently do so by the age of 18, leaving them to navigate independent living and adulthood. This week, we’ll be recognising the incredible care experienced young people we work with in Together For Children and will be celebrating their achievements.
"I carried on following my passion with music which I grew fond of since the beginning of secondary school, by applying and completing a two-year BTEC Level 3 Extended Diploma in Applied Music Practice at Bede Campus." - Mark, 18
