Black Care

Black Care seeks out and celebrates the voices and stories of Britain’s Black Care Leavers. It aims to shed light on the experience of Black people in the care system to raise awareness, educate those in charge and help improve the experience of Black children in the care of the local authority today.

We are looking for Black care leavers/ people with care experience of all ages to share their experiences and have their stories heard for a wider heritage project. If you'd like to know more please fill out this online form.

This October we are celebrating Black History Month and care leavers week with an exciting and unique programme of events in collaboration with the Stephen Lawrence Research Centre and De Montfort University.

Black Care 23 is funded using public money from the National Lottery Community Fund and De Montfort University.
