The Rees Foundation is a registered Charity (1154019) founded by Jan Rees OBE in October 2013 to support care leavers and care experienced individuals and communities across the UK, for as long as there is a need.
The Rees Foundation’s philosophy is a strength-based model, co-creating and championing with and for care leavers and care experienced people across the UK.
The Rees Foundation is continuing to break new ground in developing a range of After-Care services, regional peer networks, creative activities, adventures, projects and financial support for care leavers and care experienced people; age is not a barrier to engagement. Working in partnership with care leavers and care experienced people, local authorities, VCS, other stakeholders to help inform and influence policy and best practice.
We encourage care leavers/care experienced people to join our membership to help us to grow a network of care experienced individuals and communities.
We empower the Voices of care leavers/care experienced people and are part of the difference in challenging discrimination and stigma care experienced face.
Person Centred Approach
We know from experience that “good parenting” never stops and this is why we aim to develop a Rees Care Experienced Council. To empower the Voice of care leavers/care experienced people and to keep improving our service priorities.
