It was Care Day 2017 on Friday 17th February.
Care Day is an annual event organised by Become, the national charity for children and young people in care and young care leavers.
The function of the day is to focus and reflect on the childhood we are providing for children and young people in care, and the support we give them to move towards successful and fulfilled future lives.
