Today, February 19th is Care Day – a global celebration of children in care. There are nearly 6,000 children and young people in care in Ireland & almost 3,000 young adults in after care. These cohorts often lack visibility and can be overlooked in national conversation on children’s issues. Clare chats to callers who have gone through the foster care system.
