In 2010, the CLA will be running an event, which will give young people in care and care leavers (aged 15-25), from black and minority ethnic background, the chance to speak out about the care system and how it could be changed for the better.

Work on this project is well on the way and we now have a steering group of young people who are helping us to plan the event.

However, we would still love to hear the views of other young people. This is crucial to make sure that we get things right. We want to make sure this event is as good as it possibly can be.

We have designed a questionnaire so that you can tell us what you think about our plans so far. You can download the questionnaire here: BME Project Questionnaire.

You can return it to us by email or by FREEPOST to the following address:

Care Leavers’ Association
Express Networks
1 George Leigh Street
M4 5DL

If you want to give us your views but prefer not to fill in the questionnaire, you can get in touch in any of the following ways:
