Become - charity for children in care and young care leavers

Some young people have good experiences of the care system, but they are too few.

‘Care’ should provide the opportunity to take a breath in a safe environment. But many tell us they enter care feeling overwhelmed and isolated, only to be let down by the system that should look after them. 

They say they struggle to get the support they’re legally entitled to, having to fight for a safe roof over their heads, for money, clothes, bedding, and necessities.

Children in care rarely get favours or leg-ups. When they succeed it is often despite the system, not because of it. 

This must change.

Become is here to make a difference to individual lives right now, and the care system as a whole for future generations. Since 1992 we’ve been working to improve the everyday lives and future life chances of children in care and young care leavers.
