Good Morning,

I am the Director of Delivery for Leap Confronting Conflict and am writing to share with you an opportunity to become programme partners for phase two of our young people in care programme.

 

Good afternoon,

It is Care Day 2020, and I want to spend some time acknowledging the incredible people we have worked with through Under our Roof (Leap’s programme for young people and adult practitioners in a care setting). I have had the privilege of speaking to, learning from and getting to know a number of foster carers and residential support workers who are working tirelessly, in a very chaotic system, to provide a safe and supportive space for the young people in their care.

On International Care Day 2019, we thought we would reflect on what we have learnt over the past two years through developing our new programme Under Our Roof. It is designed specifically to support young people in care (both residential and foster care) and their carers to manage conflict effectively, and to support them to build and maintain safer and more supportive relationships.

Lesson 1: Young People with lived experience have been the programme’s greatest asset

 

During 24th – 30th October 2018 experienced Leap trainers and young people will be coming together to develop and design a new curriculum working with young people in the care system, and their carers (both in foster care and residential children’s homes).
