#CareDay23 – A Global Celebration of Children in Care
Care Day, the world’s biggest celebration of children and young people with care experience, is happening on 17 February 2023. Care Day 2023 is an opportunity to celebrate the rights of care experienced children and young people and is a joint initiative between five children’s rights charities across the U.K. and Ireland, under the 5 Nations 1 Voice alliance. Become in England, EPIC in Ireland, VOYPIC in Northern Ireland, Voices from Care in Wales, and Who Cares? Scotland. The alliance wants a world where the childhoods of these children and young people allow them to thrive and achieve their dreams so that they go on to have a future that is fulfilled, and that they are proud of.
Those who care for and support these children and young people are also asked to celebrate. It is also an opportunity to illustrate how care-experienced people can feel different from others and why. So, this Care Day, everyone has the chance to get vocal, get social, or get together in celebration of the care-experienced community.
