What is Voices?

Voices is a celebration of the creativity, talent and imagination of Looked After Children and Care Leavers. The competition gives young people the chance to tell people what you want to say about their experiences.

Every year, young people write inspiring stories, poems, raps, and articles, hoping to be shortlisted for our awards ceremony in the spring.

The theme for Voices 2020 was ‘Dreams‘.
