Today we celebrate National Care Day, a day to celebrate the successes and achievements of children and young people with experience of care and acknowledging those that work within the profession.

The theme this year is ‘It takes a village to raise a child’, which focuses on how different people in communities can have a positive influence on children and young people and how important these relationships are in shaping the lives of our care experienced community.

Out of the 12 million children living in England, just under 400,000 (3%) are in the social care system at any one time. More than 80,000 of these children are children in care.

We can all recall people in our lives who had or continue to have a significant impact on our lives. Whether they are relatives, social workers, teachers, neighbours. Its people like our social workers that can really make a difference to young people’s lives, working to ensure they have the right influence and guidance to succeed.
