CLA networking meetings have been a positive for all the people who have attended them across the UK. What has come across very clearly is that although the meetings can feel a little strange at first to those who have had little or no contact with care leavers since leaving care themselves, people are nevertheless taking a lot from the experience. Indeed, many are coming away with the desire to continue meeting and networking with other care leaver groups as they develop.
The meetings are relaxed, informal get-togethers providing a chance to socialise and meet other care leavers. They are an opportunity to find out more about the CLA and see what opportunities there are for getting more involved in care leaver issues. For example, access to childhood care records, education, employment, training, housing, current leaving care provision, the needs of adults with care experience and the needs of care leavers in the criminal justice system.
