Care Leavers Rock! Group
#Careleaversrock is a Facebook group for people who were in care at some point in their lives. We build lasting friendships and relationships, we answer questions and queries about all leaving care issues from education to living alone, we also post motivational stories and quotes to keep you going when the day seems a little difficult. We have care leavers who work directly with children and young people now as professionals and we also have care leavers who left care a long time ago but still have a special voice.
