Leaving care parents support group visit to see Santa

14 Dec 2023

We have been developing a flourishing partnership with Leicestershire County Council leaving care team to offer support to those of care experience and their children. Over the last year we have supported parents and their children on trips to the seaside and a Christmas activity to see Santa. A big thanks goes to Hastings direct for their support of the project as well as Esmee Fairbairn and Catch 22 for the learning we have received on their relational practice project.

Thank you for a lovely day my daughter loved seeing Santa


Whoop whoop Emma. And thank you Leicestershire Carers, you’ve been amazing to our service this year.

Sarah Cole, Leaving Care Advisor, Leicestershire County Council
