experienced discrimination as Care Experienced person? let @whocaresscot know & support future talks
"We agree that it is unacceptable for any child or young person in care to be subject to discriminatory behaviour or stigma."
WhoCaresScott received response from the UK Government Equalities Office to their letter, signed by hundreds of people that we posted info here on our blog back in May - see a copy of the letter below this post!
This is an exciting response. The UK Government has acknowledged that Care Experienced people are facing discrimination. If you've experienced discrimination as a Care Experienced person, please let @whocaresscot know about it here ahead of further talks using this form.

Copy of open letter:
This week, another community has rejected a children's home in their area. The view that Care Experienced people are bad, damaged and troubled has to end. We've written an open letter, asking the UK Government Minister for Women and Equalities to meet and challenge this.
