A forum for leaders of Children England member organisations to hear from the Care Experienced Movement* and discuss how charities might be able to support it.

Member organisations are invited to join us online to learn about the new movement of care experienced adults, activists, professionals and others who want to give the care experienced community its voice back. 

The forum will include:

  • An introduction to representatives of the Care Experienced Movement, who will explain their aspirations and plans for the Movement
  • A chance for members to ask questions about the Movement
  • A discussion of what help would be useful to the Movement and how members might be able to contribute 

Who should attend:

  • Chief Executives and Directors of our member organisations are expressly invited
  • Staff working in areas of policy and practice related to the care system are also welcome

The forum has been convened by Children England for our member TACT and will be chaired by our CEO Kathy Evans. There is no charge for attendance but your organisation must be a paid-up member of Children England. Contact us to check your membership and ask any other questions about the forum.

We currently plan for the session to last an hour but may extend this to 90 minutes depending on numbers of people booking. 

* More about the Care Experienced Movement

We are a group of intergenerational, intersectional Care Experienced Activists, Advocates, Professionals, Mums, Dads, Sisters, Brothers and more. We all want to use our diverse lived experience of the care system to not only create and push for change, but to platform our community. 

We are a force of care experienced people coming together to take back ownership over what it means to be care experienced. We want our Care Experienced community up on the platform it rightfully deserves to be on, to use their own voices.

We see this as a civil rights issue. Our united sense is that this unbelievably maligned community requires a platform that can advocate, unite it, seek social change, and call for accountability on the system we all grew up in. We believe our community must be at the centre of that. We want to spark the community to find its voice and to represent itself across the country. We don’t want to be the voice for the community, but the movement to give the community its voice back.
