Young people shine at National Care Leavers conference


Young people behind the Aspire To More  project inspired delegates at the Nation Care Leavers conference last week in Westminster. Amy and Shelly represented Show Me That I Matter, joining Inspired Youth at the event, organised by the Princes Trust, to showcase their poster campaign and website.

Sharing the stage with Edward Timpson MP – Minister of State for Vulnerable Children and Families, and other organisations working with care experienced children and young people, Shelly and Amy spoke passionately about the importance of role models to raise aspirations.

Delegates at the event, which was part of national care leavers week 2016, reacted really positively and gained a lot of interest from organisations and local authorities from all over the country. This marks another amazing achievement for the Aspire To More project and Show Me That I Matter, further pushing their positive messages and helping to reduce the stigma that young people in care and leaving care often experience.
