With less than 24 hours to go until Voices 2018 closes for entries, we are looking back on the media coverage we have gained throughout the competition, including…

Community Care who spoke to our Head of Policy and Practice Development, Linda Briheim-Crookall about why we set up the competition, discover why here.

Linda also spoke to Big Issue North about the importance of the competition in a feature that also included last year’s shortlisted entry and video by G. Read it here.

One of our brilliant Voices judges, Lola Jaye, wrote a blog for The Huffington Post, speaking about the importance of writing to help cope with loneliness and loss. Read what she has to say here.

Schools Week also featured Voices 2018 in their bulletin, encouraging teachers to put forward pupils in care for our annual writing competition. Read about this here.

Thank you to all the organisations, charities, and publications that included Voices in their newsletters, bulletins and websites, and helped us spread the word on social media, allowing us to reach more young people in and leaving care across the UK.

Remember, you still have until midnight tonight (8 February) to submit your entries for Voices 2018 here, good luck!
