CREATE Foundation 2013 Report Card launched

Jan Barham and Billy Black at the CREATE Foundation 2013 Report Card launch

Jan was pleased to attend the launch of the CREATE Foundation’s 2013 Report Card, titled “Experiencing Out-of-Home Care: The Views of Children and Young People”. The report card includes the results of a broad-ranging survey of more than 1,000 children and young people in out-of-home care. Jan got to hear from four impressive and articulate young people, including Billy Black, to learn how the care system can better support children. They also talked about the importance of young people’s involvement in making plans for leaving care, and the availability of support for young adults once they have left care.
