Event Details



The "Care Leavers Experience – The Real Icons" is an event which will be a showcase of those who have had a care experience and then gone on to achieve. We would like you to join us at the KCOM Craven Park for bacon sandwiches, croissants, tea or coffee before enjoying our morning event which will be followed by a buffet lunch.


The event will encourage Hull businesses to support Hull's Care Leavers Commitment, by offering them opportunities whilst in care or when they leave care. We already have a number of businesses willing to support them and we are hoping that others will agree to support in terms of care leavers at the event and encourage other businesses to consider the same.


You will also hear from the Children’s University who are working, in conjunction with the Letterbox Club and Book Trust, to deliver a free reading programme for children in care who require extra support to improve their reading ability and confidence. The Letterbox Club is more than just a reading programme. It’s an opportunity to make new friends, learn new skills, be rewarded, bond with carers and even visit some popular local attractions.


Keynote speaker for the event will be Lizzy Hodcroft, she was the star turn of Newcastle Start Up Week recently in which she outlined the importance and the necessity of Good Mental Health and how important it is in what can be the lonely world of self employment.


The Sweet Beet founder has always had a passion for exploring the wider world, in life, in business and in flavour. Now through the creation of a range of innovative and mouth-watering condiments Lizzy is empowering the nation to experiment and create their own flavour fusions to declare war on the mundane.


Building on culinary skills developed through various roles in the hospitality industry, Lizzy recognised a demand from consumers for easy to incorporate solutions that could either liven up an everyday dinner or offer a base ingredient for experimenting with unique and inspired creations.
