Care Day is an annual international celebration of the Care Experienced community.
Today we are celebrating International Care Day by lighting up the always elegant Bishops Palace in pink & red…Care Day exists to celebrate and champion young people with care experience and it’s an opportunity for us to re-imagine the future of care experienced people in the Highlands and across Scotland.
The theme of this year’s event is re-imagining:
Whatever is given / Can always be re-imagined
We partner with ‘Who Cares Scotland’ a brilliant national voluntary organisation, working with care experienced young people and care leavers across Scotland. We provide opportunities to get involved with us at Eden Court by creating films, performing at our showcase events, making music videos, or by finding opportunities for young people to hang out and be a part of things in the building. We firmly believe that there should be no barriers in participation and that we can be a driving force behind imagination.
This year’s Care Day takes place today and aims to:
- Celebrate: Shift public attitudes on care experienced people’s lives.
- Connect: Bring together the care experienced community with their allies and corporate parents to talk about how we can ensure care experienced people get the love, rights and relationships they deserve.
- Communicate: Motivate the care experienced community, their allies and corporate parents to share their celebrations, show their commitments and ignite discussion.
