On 16 February Barnet officially launched ‘Live Unlimited’, a registered charity based on the vision of providing all looked after children and care leavers with the opportunities, support and inspiration to fulfil their potential and follow their dreams.
The charity has three main themes:
Inspiring all looked after children and care leavers to succeed beyond their imagination
This charitable trust will allow looked after children or care leavers to apply for individual small grants for activities such as football or ballet lessons, theatre trips and out-of-school activities that support them in fulfilling their own unique hopes and dreams.
The charity will complement the extensive services and support the council provides to every looked after child, and will fund the sort of additional activities which families might provide for their children outside of school hours.
The charity aims to help the 326 looked after children and 216 care leavers in Barnet.
