Vital Support for Care-Experienced People
We believe that all care-experienced people should be given every opportunity to succeed and live their best life beyond care.
Lucam Retreats’ mission is to empower care-experienced people to live their best lives by reaching their true potential.
We Endeavour To Do The Following:
Because your feelings are valid, your choices matter, and your voice should be heard. We asked young people in care and care-experienced people who left care what they needed most upon leaving, but never got. They shared their hopes, fears, and ideas of what would have made it better for them.
So we leant forward, pinned our ears back, and listened. We wrote down lots of ideas and thoughts, we listened some more, then wrote lots more stuff down – good stuff, really good stuff!
With the help of the people who shared their journey & experiences in care, we put together a year-long programme designed to support people in care & care-experienced people just like you.
We created four weekly retreats to help you get away and create valuable space between you and your everyday. A much-needed escape from the overwhelming realities of your daily life – too many things fighting for your attention and not enough time or space to do them.
Each retreat week gives you the time and space to think, create, and explore exactly what it is you’d like to do when you leave care. Our team will encourage you along the way, listening and engaging with you to help develop your plan while supporting the development of your Core Living Skills.
You’ll get to uncover your very own ‘Super Powers’ whilst developing your self-confidence & self-belief, building your resilience, and learning effective communication skills while finding your own voice.
