This week marks National Care Leavers Week, a week which is dedicated to highlighting the needs of those leaving care and the theme this year is future aspirations.
In honour of National Care Leavers Week Wrexham Council is renewing its commitment to do all it can to support looked after children leaving care as they turn 18 and become independent by developing a local pledge for care leavers.
Cllr David A Bithell, Deputy Leader, said “We want the very best for our young people in care and our care leavers. We know that the move from being a looked after child to a care leaver is a uniquely critical time in a young person’s life and as a council it is our responsibility to make sure that they have the support available to them that so many of us may take for granted.
“As a corporate parent, we have the same aspirations for our care leavers as we would our own children. We are here to listen, advise and support our young people so they can go on to achieve the very best in life for themselves.”
If we get a bad settlement, we’ll have to look at further cuts.Have your say.DWEUD EICH DWEUD
