It is getting to the end of National Care Leavers Week which for the past few years has focussed on raising awareness of the ‘care cliff’. We want to support you and other care experienced people in looking to the future and are launching the “Dear Future Me” competition, open until Monday 7th November.

The messages will remain anonymous and can be anything you want to say, for example sharing career, life, travel, personal and/or other ambitions and aspirations for the future. Or you could use the postcards to offer advice and words of encouragement to your future self. You can also opt out of it being shared publicly.
