Nothing About Us, Without Us
Our Current Work
We are currently in development mode to become a community interest company by the end of this year this is alongside planning and running our very first projects. You can read about these here and also see our current process on becoming a C.I.C.
Response to the Government's Care Review response
We spent a month visiting two local authorities throughout April 2023 to research the thoughts and opinions of care experienced people currently in the care system about the care review and the government's response to the care review. We spoke with 40 Care Experienced People in total to develop this response.
We have written a preliminary report to be submitted by the government's deadline of 11th May 2023, however, we will be working on a wider report over the next year to be submitted to government, while working in partnership with local authorities/councils. We hope to reach out to more Care Experienced People and develop a response that includes as many members of the Care Experienced community as possible.
We used our funding from Blagrave Challenge and change fund to cover the costs of this project. This can be seen via our open collective. These costs included paying CEYP £50 for their time, food/drink costs for the workshop days, and the expenses of travelling to Brighton and Wolverhampton to work with young people.

Becoming a community interest company
We are currently in the early stages of becoming a community interest company. This includes launching new recruitment for new steering board members who are able to help steer us in supportive and productive ways, developing a terms of reference and scheme of delegation and more.
We look forward to sharing our updates along the way on this!
Sharing the news of our wonderful care experienced community
The core aim of the movement is to develop a platform that empowers care experienced people. We are currently developing a section on our website to share updates from care experienced people on the work they are currently doing (within the care sector and out of it!)
Developing a membership
Right now, we don't have a membership in a formal sense. This is something we would like to develop once we are a legal entity and have the funding in place to develop a membership that supports, champions, and uplifts the people apart of the Care Experienced Movement. One that gives back to the community.
Once we have developed this, we will put out an open call for people to join the movement in a membership style. We will share more updates on this soon.
