For Care Day 2020, Leicestershire Cares handed our Twitter account over to our young people to so they could host a lunchtime Q&A where people could ask them questions about what it is like to be care experienced.
You can follow the Q&A below.
Less corporate, more parent
The wider Care family and friends
Care leavers and employment
Taught us what NOT TO BE
Care leavers and Education
Honest, positive and inspirational
The young people found the experience of answering questions about their experience, empowering and cathartic. The bite size form of twitter allowed the young people to skip from topic to topic and enable them to feel that they were able to share their wide and diverse lives as care leavers.
