Link-Up – Become

Link-Up - Become

Become is the national charity working to improve the everyday lives and future life chances of children in care and young care leavers. Become provide advice and support, influence policy and practice, help guide the lives of young people in care and care leavers, enable them to achieve their education aspirations and train professionals who work with young people.

 

Link-Up

Link-Ups are for care-experienced young people aged 18 - 27

Link-Ups used to be a virtual hang out for care-experienced young people. Since then, we have developed this into Link-Up Reloaded: three in-person Link-Ups per year, for care-experienced young people aged 18 – 27, where care-experienced young people can come together to chat, develop a sense of community, and have fun together.

 

What to expect?

  • We play lots of games, get competitive with quizzes, debate various topics and sometimes cook or craft together. We have Link-Up Specials, too, which have included a Pancake Day special, ‘Elf Yourself’ Christmas games, a poetry workshop and more.
  • Our Link-Up Speakers’ Corners also welcome care-experienced speakers who share their life experiences and have an open discussion.
  • Once a month you will receive an update and survey for the upcoming Link Up which will inform plans for the next in-person Link Up and to help to decide the focus of the virtual Link-Up Special.
