They are now seeking expressions of interest from organisations that have an established track record of working with young people in relation to the above issues and are interested in delivering a project which specifically targets care experienced young people. . Project ideas should focus on: improving knowledge of the needs and aspirations of care experienced young people affected by the protected characteristics listed above; improving care experienced young people’s ability to exercise their rights; improving confidence and skills.
