Care Day takes place on the 16th February. It is the world's biggest celebration of children and young people with care experience. Care experience includes children and young people who are or were cared for by parents or other family members with the support of social workers; or by foster carers. It also includes children and young people who live in children's homes and residential units.
The aim of Care Day is to flip the stigma that is faced by children and young people who have experience of the care system.
The celebrations in Wales will be led by Voices From Care Cymru (VFCC) whose purpose is to improve the lives of care experienced children and young people in Wales by being an independent voice.
As part of the day, young people will be having lunch with David Melding AM, who is the chair of the Ministerial Advisory Group on Looked After Children, to share their thoughts, stories and questions.
The celebration of the care family will extend to North Wales where VFCC staff will be holding a group with care experienced children and young people.
During the celebrations VFCC will be premiering their light-hearted video on 'questions not to ask', which focuses on questions that care experienced children and young people are often asked and how they feel about them.
Care Day is a joint initiative between children's charities across the whole of the UK under the 5 Nations 1 Voice Alliance (including 'Who Cares? Scotland', 'Becomg in England', VOYPIC in Northern Ireland and 'Voices From Care' in Wales).
