The Statement of Commitment – Making It Happen

Chloe Cockett, Policy and Research Advisor

13th June 2014

why are we here
Why are we here?
  • Who Cares? magazine started in 1985, The Who Cares? Trust established in 1992 to act as a voice and champion for children in care.
  • We publish information, work with young people, run projects and campaign for change in the care system.
  • 40% of the children in care and care leavers that we asked said that they wanted to go on to university.
aspirations
Aspirations

‘Looked after children that I have worked with tend not to have any aspirations for the future. Many of them are disengaged with education and have no interest in it. They are focussed on their current situation and often have many issues to deal with that, for them, have priority over education.’ [Education outreach consultant for looked after children]

“The system makes a mockery of the term 'corporate parenting'. Would we treat our own kids the way looked-after children are treated by the system at times?”

[LACES Outreach Worker]

“The education system has let these children down badly before they even enter the care system and the care system then takes the blame”

[Social worker]
