Events and opportunities

There are lots of events and opportunities in Hillingdon for looked after children.

EventsKids In Care Awards

Every year, we celebrate the achievements of our children in care with an awards event.

The awards recognise young people who have overcome a difficult upbringing or challenging circumstances to make an outstanding achievement in their lives - whether this is achieving excellent exam results, making a contribution to the community, doing well in sport, or making personal progress by improving their own development, self esteem or sense of wellbeing.

The event is designed, planned and hosted by the KICA panel. If you are a young person in care, or a care leaver, in Hillingdon and would like to join the panel, email kica@hillingdon.gov.uk.
