Ask a Care Leaver
Financial workshop for young people leaving care
As a young care leaver, Coco has set up her own organisation to give support to other young people living alone for the first time and managing bills, rent and adult life as care leavers. She felt that the best way to do this would be to build a network of care leavers to support each other and to offer workshops that address important issues for young people.
She ran her first ever Ask a Care Leaver event in partnership with Lambeth Council, offering a finance workshop for 10 young people who needed to build their skills and get quality advice.
Coco is now looking at running further workshops in partnership with councils.
