Care leavers event
One of the projects the Enhancement Themes Student Network worked on during the first year of the Theme was an event for care leavers. This took place on Wednesday 1 April 2015, with the aim of raising awareness of care leavers among staff and students, and to discuss the type of support they receive and if this can be improved.
The event was timely as new legislation around Corporate Parenting came into affect on 1 April and this provided the focus for much of the discussion. We had four speakers in attendance and their details and presentations can be found on the right.
