Care Leavers' Association

An ever growing union of care leavers

 

Welcome to The Care Leavers' Association Website.

Have a look around. If you were in care as a child then why not join us? If you'd like to contact people that you were in care with then why not join CareleaversReunited as well? Feel free to tell us your ideas or come to our meetings. We focus on many issues that are relevant to care leavers of all ages. Explore our website to find out more. Full membership is open to anyone aged 18 or over who spent all or part of their childhood in care (we have members aged from age 18 to over 80). If you support us but were not in care you can become an associate member. See our 'Get Involved' pages.
