To raise £30,000 to fund joyous Christmas Day experiences for care leavers across the UK, with a dinner, presents and all the trimmings!

I think this idea is fantastic. I could not imagine my sister or brother being turned out at such a young age and be on their own, financially and emotionally. I wish you all well
Many young people who leave care do not get the support they need and have a right to. This project is a small but very important recognition of how we must better care for our children who enter the care system and frequently get a raw deal.
My eight year old son (who, incidentally, is adopted) was distressed by seeing homeless people in town yesterday. He wanted to do something useful and contributing to the Foundation seemed a meaningful way of helping him to do that.
I am the adoptive parent of two wonderful boys and the welfare of those in care/leaving care is close to my heart. This project is a way of letting care leavers know they are still supported and recognised by their communities. Have a great day!
I love the idea of letting these young people know that they matter, that they deserve to be treated, that they can have good things ahead of them beginning with this gesture of a meal. And eating together is a uniting action. All the best!

Let's make 'The Christmas Dinners 2018' happen
