Celebrating Children in Care & Care Leavers

Last week we were proud to sponsor Barnsley Council’s Children in Care & Care Leavers Celebration event, which recognises personal achievement and helps to raise young people’s aspirations. There was three categories of nomination: Personal achievement; education, training, employment and apprenticeships; and sports and performing arts, plus group nominations.

This year, the event attracted 244 nominations for young people from workers, foster carers, residential staff, and independent reviewing officers, who are asked to nominate in writing why the young person was being nominated.  All were recognised and the winners were announced at the celebration event and presented with a certificate of achievement. It was an enjoyable and inspirational evening and well done to everyone involved.
