Congratulations to our Voices 2019 winners, commended entries, and to every young person who entered our creative writing competition for children in care and young care leavers. We've received hundreds of incredible entries, and the awards ceremony took place at Havas in London on April 10.

Voices national writing competition

Voices is our creative writing competition for children in care and care leavers, who are 25 or under. Voices is a celebration of your creativity, talent and imagination.  The competition gives you a chance to tell people what you want to say and improves understanding of your experiences.

The theme for 2019's competition was 'Growing up' and winners received up to £100 in Love2Shop vouchers, books, and were invited to attend our amazing awards ceremony at Havas in London. Shortlisted entries are also showcased on a special app featuring writing from children in care.
