To mark VOYPIC’s first ever Care Day NI on Friday 19th February, Family Care Society staff held a special Team Meeting in our new Derry office.
We talked about our work with children in care, particularly in relation to their needs in moving into adoption. We discussed the post adoption support available to these children in their new families and how we might help to plan for a more positive future.
Staff from the Life Story Project also participated in the Team meeting, giving examples of the positive results that children in care experienced from taking part in their own Life Story work and highlighting the necessity of such a programme for this group of young people.
Family Care Society are very happy to support the great work undertaken by VOYPIC with young people in care and hope that this Care Day will be the first of many for children in care across Northern Ireland!!
