Become (formerly known as The Who Cares? Trust) has been supporting, and campaigning for, children in care and young care leavers since 1985. Our experienced spokespeople can talk authoritatively and confidently about the issues facing children in care and young care leavers. We believe it’s important to listen to children and young people and what they think about care – and that extends to media comment. We will try and facilitate links between young people and journalists when this is appropriate.
If you have an enquiry for Become, please contact the press office on 020 7017 2788 or email email@example.com
