Hiya and a Merry Christmas to you. It’s a bit early for the “Merry Christmas” bombshell but hear me out This year I’m coordinating three Christmas Dinners for care leavers. One in Leeds one in Manchester and one in East London. Wanna help? If you are in these areas and can commit to between seven and ten meetings over the last 3 months of 2015 – no need to be there on Christmas Day – then let me know in the comments below this blog.
Christmas Day can be the saddest most distraught day of the year. We intend to stop this in its tracks. We are not an organization. But we are organized. Our care standards are high and rigorously applied. Each team will have at least fifty years experience of working with young people: Pediatricians, theatre practitioners, social workers, PR, teachers and unemployed. All kinds of people have joined in and all found it a wonderful experience.
The crucial aspiration and driving force behind The Christmas Dinner is that we – that is to say the people of each area – care for the care leaver on Christmas Day with a scrumptious meal and incredible presents. Your probably wondering what needs to be done. You can read about The Christmas Dinner in any of the blogs I’ve written – 2013 and 2014. And if you’d like an information pack on how we do it write me in the comments to this blog. Alternatively these two pages explain the Christmas dinner. 2013 and 2104.
