Become - The Charity for Children in Care & Young Care Leavers

Since 1992 when we were established as a charity (born out of Who Cares? magazine which started in 1985), we've been working to improve the everyday lives and future life chances of children in care and young care leavers.

We provide help, support and advice to young people in care and young care leavers so that they can unleash their potential and take control of their lives. We help make the care system work better by ensuring that young people’s voices and perspectives shape policy and service provision.

Ask us for advice - it's free

In care or a care leaver? Looking for help and advice? Talk to us in confidence – online or over the phone on our dedicated helpline for young people. We really know our stuff about the care system and what everyone’s rights and entitlements are!



Lines open - 10.30am-5pm - Monday to Friday
