About National Care Leavers' Week






National Care Leavers’ Week is
about highlighting the needs of
care leavers, and encouraging
the agencies responsible for
looking after them to work in
a coordinated and effective way.
The week is also about focussing
the minds of politicians on the
lack of support for these uniquely
vulnerable individuals and
raising public awareness about an invisible minority who face a particular set of challenges as they enter adult life. It’s easy to brush them and their problems under the carpet - we are determined not to let that happen.



Who we are

Established in 2002 by independent charity the Care Leavers’ Foundation, National Care Leavers’ Week brings together major charities and interest groups working with care leavers. Participants and leaders in the week’s events over the years have included  A National Voice, The Care Leavers' Association, Catch 22 National Care Advisory Service,  Voices from Care,  Voice, The Prince’s Trust, Barnardo’s and many more.
