This week, some of our young people took part in Become Charity's, Passport for Parliament programme, an outreach project empowering looked after children and care leavers to be agents of change - in their own lives and within the care system.

Become's aim is to strengthen participants’ confidence and sense of empowerment by connecting them to decision makers and to a wider community of care-experienced young people facing similar issues.

This week’s session gave our young people the opportunity to share ideas they’ve had of how they would implement change in the care system to help improve the lives of young people in care and care leavers.

The session was held at the Olympic Park and we enjoyed a trip up to the top of the ArcelorMittal Orbit to take in the stunning views across London and finished up by riding the slide!
