About this theme
This theme covers topics relating to improving the lives and outcomes of children and young people with experience of care. It is one of our current programmes for Fellowships, launched in 2023. It has been developed in partnership with the Hadley Trust, Coram Group and in consultation with our Children in Care working group. Fellows’ stories

Emmanuel Akpan-Inwang (CF 2018), Founder and Director of Lighthouse Pedagogy Trust, a new type of childrens' home has celebrated with his team the home being open for one year. He reports that they have some amazing young people in the home, who have settled in well and are enjoying living there. They have had visits from young people’s families, local authorities, funders, MPs, Ofsted and more, all of whom have been sharing wonderful feedback with the team. Emmanuel says that they are thinking about how they can further develop their first home, and what the future looks like in terms of opening more homes.
