Empowering Futures Through Education: A March Update

his March, we’ve seen an inspiring array of educational initiatives designed to enrich and empower the lives of young people in care. From enlightening workshops to the joyous celebration of World Book Day, it’s been a month full of learning and literary exploration. Here’s a closer look at what’s been happening and what’s on the horizon.

Navigating Rights and Support: The Become Workshop

A highlight of this month was the Rights and Entitlements Workshop, facilitated by the esteemed charity, Become. We extend our heartfelt thanks to all who encouraged the attendance of their young individuals. The workshop offered an invaluable platform for them to gain insights into the support available as they transition from care. Their engagement, evidenced by their attentiveness and willingness to pose questions, was truly heartening.

For those unable to join this time, worry not – future workshops are in the pipeline. Meanwhile, Become remains a resource ripe for exploration, particularly for those aged 16 and above seeking to understand their entitlements. We urge you to guide them to explore further at

Amplifying Voices: The Bi-monthly Youth Council

Our Youth Council meetings continue to be a source of inspiration, driven by the thoughts and ideas of our children and young people. Their contributions are invaluable, often leading to the most innovative solutions. We are grateful to everyone who participated in the recent session and eagerly anticipate welcoming more young voices at the end of April.

A Celebration of Stories: World Book Day

On the horizon, March 7th marks the return of World Book Day – a delightful occasion dedicated to celebrating literature and fostering a love for reading among young minds. Reading offers a myriad of benefits, from enhancing empathy to sparking imagination.

This World Book Day, why not delve into a discussion about favourite book characters with your child or young person? Share the stories that captivated you during your childhood and explore what made them memorable. Encourage the younger children to get creative by designing their own book covers, while the older ones might share a quote that has left a lasting impression on them. Above all, let’s use this day to nurture a passion for reading and storytelling.

Should your child choose to embrace the spirit of the day by dressing up as their favourite book character, we’d love to share in the joy – please do send us a photo of their costume.

As we move forward, our commitment to enriching the educational experiences of young people remains steadfast. Through workshops, councils, and celebrations like World Book Day, we strive to empower them with knowledge, support, and a love for learning that will last a lifetime.
