Celebration of creativity and talent

A writing competition has helped showcase the creative talents of care experienced children and young people.

Help us to celebrate these wonderful examples of the voices of looked after children and care leavers.  The competition was run by Coram Voice and the winners were announced at an event held by Coram. Read more at source: here
