Aashna's Jamie Crabb has been involved in organising the Care Experienced Conference that took place on 26th April 2019 at Liverpool Hope University, Liverpool.
The conference was a national conference for care experienced people and care leavers of all ages to enable a much-needed debate about the care system past and present, and to try to get the views of the wider care experienced community heard about how the care system can be improved in future.
Here Jamie speaks to BBC Merseyside about being involved in the conference:

This is just a first step for the conference with future events planned. Keep in touch via their newsletter, Twitter and Facebook. Aashna wish them all the best for the next steps in this important social justice movement for change for #CareExperienced people.
