New dates, times and venues for the next set of regional Care Leaver network meetings If you need advice, support, guidance or just someone to talk then please come along to the meeting closet to you.

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.
