Rees Foundation

We have assisted with the formation of an independent charity known as Rees – The Care leavers Foundation, this sits outside the Core Assets Group as a registered charity.

Their mission is not only to support the care leavers of the group, but the wider cohort of care leavers in England and Wales.

The founder Jan Rees, who was herself a foster carer, was keen to create networks, services and programs that help them to be successful within their adult lives.

“Volunteering for the Rees Foundation- using your experience and skills to help out- This has contributed to giving me a sense of worth, my views and expressions are heard as I’m given the opportunity to advocate for myself and others with care experience.” Care leaver
