Why we must "elevate" the voices of care-experienced children - Lemn Sissay MBE

Ruth Dacey - Yorkshire Post

According to this article from the Yorkshire Post, "the voices of care-experienced children must be placed 'at the heart' of the Government’s independent care review, with long term funding implications to raise the ambitions of young people, a northern foster child, poet and university chancellor has said." Lemn Sissay, a poet who grew up in care, told the Yorkshire Post "I do hope the Government highlights the voice of care leavers - not just in this care review but afterwards - we have an opportunity here to step up and help those who are most in need."
