We offer practical and affordable training and consultancy to organisations that work with looked-after young people and care leavers. Our programmes have been designed in collaboration with care-experienced young people to help teams gain a better understanding of the experience of being in care and how it can be improved. We also offer workshops for groups of young people, focused on supporting them with both the practical and emotional challenges of being in or leaving care.

Please note: we do not offer individual bookings for our training programmes. For minimum group sizes, please contact helen.sweet@becomecharity.org.uk
