This is a calender event to celebrate & recognise Care Experinced children & young people from across Scotland, the rest of the UK take part too!
We wanted Fife to have an event, as a group we decided this would be a great time to launch our website while bringing together young people and Corporate Parents.
We were invovled in the planning and organising with help from our development workers Kerri & Maryann!
Fife College provided us with a venue, the invites went out & a group of us from 2b HEARD got together during the October break and put together what WE wanted to present!
WE also invited Y-Space, a Care Leaver project from Glenrothes to get involved.......they did!

Adele & Ella wanted our attendees to understand the 'view from the young person'. I they made sure of that with some thought provoking audience participation!
Jeanette gave us an insight to 'Supported Lodgings & Shared Lives', as well as reading a heart warming poem she had wrote about leaving her residential care placement.
It was great having Kai & Sinead involved from Y-Space - a partnership project with Young Peoples Team & Glenrothes YMCA.
