TLC was launched in Calderdale in 2011 to improve the lives of Children Looked After by facilitating the support they need to fulfil their potential – whatever that may be.
Our fundraising activity supports added value initiatives designed to meet specific needs beyond the statutory care Calderdale’s Children Looked After already receive.
Children Looked After are growing up in a variety of residential or foster homes. Calderdale has over 300 Children Looked After aged 0-18 and the number varies as circumstances change. They are part of the 69,500 children in care in England.
TLC also aims to fund ‘added value’ support for young adults up to age 25 who were Children Looked After in Calderdale. These Care Leavers face the challenges of independent living, workplace training and Higher Education.
