Andreas Feldhaar updated the Board on the preparation for National Care Leavers week on 26-30 October 2020 by the Leaving Care Service.  It is for all care experienced young people between 16 and 25 years of age and this year's theme is Future Me, which also highlights areas of work which is already being developed.


There are three areas in particular which are:


i)  Build on Lancashire's social engagement strategy, promoting virtual events and support for young people.

ii)  Education, employment and training working with the Virtual School to develop some workshops and also source some support from Further and Higher Education institutions around supporting young people that are going through College and University and have to adjust and adapt to the whole virtual learning concept.

iii)  To support the development of a stronger corporate parenting ethos.  There will be a corporate parenting network event where all community partners will be invited, to enable wider communication, share learning and good practice, strengthening the understanding of everyone's role to support young people and how the individual service may impact on other areas.  Also exploring further the Local Offer and looking for a stronger commitment from partners around it.


Resolved:  That a copy of the programme will be circulated to all members of the Corporate Parenting Board.
