On the 4th and 5th of February 2006, we had a residential weekend in Todmorden to plan the year ahead.

Victoria and six members of the Exec (Mary, David, Jim, Stephen, Ian and Will) spent the time drafting up the contents of a business plan, deciding our priorities and generally getting to know each other a bit better to form a united team in taking the CLA forward on behalf of all care leavers. This proved to be a very productive time and the development weekend will now be an annual occurrence to induct each new Executive Committee.

Below, we have included some photographs from the weekend. The first one is of of Mary, Stephen, Will and Jim toasting the achievement of 1,000 people joining the ‘Careleaversreunited’ website. The next photograph is of us getting on with all our planning!
