2 years ago, I found a card in a Paperchase and posted about it on Twitter.

This then led to national headlines for me & the legendary @lemnsissay after the card was removed from Paperchase’s shelves.

Looking back on these events that took place, I have some thoughts… (🧵1/10) ImageImage
When I found this card, I wasn’t shocked. I grew up seeing stereotypes about care experienced people/adoptees throughout the mainstream & particularly in the media.

My community has often been used as the butt of the joke - like in the card I came across in 2020. (🧵2/10)
In recent years, I feel more and more hope that opinions & portrayals of our community are changing; from the John Lewis Christmas Advert, to the 2019 Care Experienced Conference, the work of various charities & orgs like @article_39, and projects like @CareExp_Culture. (🧵3/10) Image

Challenged on live TV on Why Care Experienced should be a Protected Characteristic? 3 examples in this 🧵but @ShowUsYouCare2 is committed to look at every area and publish a report. Please give us examples here @MichelleDewbs @GBNEWS #ShowUsYouCareToo
Equality impact assessments and the Information Commissioners office – care records being redacted. Our #CEP don't have time for society to eradicate discrimination before we make practical changes. @ShowUsYouCare2 Public please tell us here
Parental guarantors for care leavers. @Shelter have already demonstrated indirect sex discrimination in the private rental sector against woman. The same principals would apply to #CEP in so many areas across society. @ShowUsYouCare2 tell us here

#Advocacy thread.
A key recommendation in the @reviewCSC is for there to be independent, opt-out advocacy.
Implementation of this would be globally ground-breaking and a vg safeguard for children's rights.
#CareReview 🧵 Image
It is confusing, difficult and sometimes traumatic entering care. An #independentadvocate is there to be on the child's side. It is someone to represent their needs and wishes so that they are central in making and reviewing care plans.
Running @whocaresscot I saw firsthand how advocacy was a life-line for people in the most vulnerable situations. It gave them hope and built trust when they saw they were heard.
Having a voice over decisions that affect you is a cornerstone of children's rights.

*New Batman movie spoilers ahead*

So I watched the new Batman movie yesterday and was disgusted at the blatant harmful stereotypes of care experienced people in the movie. I read a bunch of reviews before seeing and so far that I’ve seen, no one is talking about this.
*Spoilers ahead*
It’s well-known that Batman is care experienced - his parents died in a tragic accident and he is raised by their butler Alfred. In the film, it’s told that Catwoman and the villain the Riddler are also care experienced and this motivates them in different ways.
Towards the end, the villain relives his experiences in an orphanage and tells them to Batman as a justification for his graphic and violent serial murdering of several high profile figures in the movie.

I did some basic open source-online search on this #US-based “#Turkey Democracy Project” & here is what I found:

✅It has 11 member in the Board of Directors and 2 members on the Team

✅Out of 13 people in a project dedicated for Turkey, only 1 Member is Turkish

✅Turkish media said he’s a FETO member too

✅The guy left his position in the project only few days after announcing it!

🚨Four of the Advisory Board (AB) of #Turkey Democracy Project (#TDP) are in the AB of Counter Extremism Project #CEP

✅CEP ws created by members of the AB of United Against Nuclear Iran(#UANI)

✅7 member of the AB of UANI are in the AB of TDP

✅UANI is funded by 🇦🇪🇸🇦🇮🇱

We want to create safe and healing spaces for care experienced people to come together. In these spaces we can talk about our care experiences, life in general, & have a space where we are all equal. This is why every first Thursday of the month we hold “Reclaim Gatherings” 👇
Reclaim Gatherings are spaces designed for care experienced people of any age to join and feel safe in. We often have a set discussion topic for each of the gatherings, but recently we’ve found the conversations have an organic narrative and can take on a different direction.
As a collective, we have also decided to host “Reclaim Fun”. These are a safe space for care experienced people to ‘let go’. The focus of the sessions are about having fun.

Details on the first “Reclaim Fun” will be announced soon, so follow @ReclaimCare for the latest updates!

Care experienced people are people of any age who have spent any time within the care system; whether that’s through foster care, residential care homes, adoption, kinship, secure care, or having social work intervention. This is what makes someone 'care experienced'. THREAD 👇
Care day is a national awareness day held in February to celebrate care experienced people. @ReclaimCare was formed in response to the tokenism which our community experienced on these days. Voices of care experienced people were often being lost due to poorly planned campaigns.
On #CareDay21 we decided, in response to National Care Leavers Week, that we wanted to RECLAIM the day for care experienced people from organisations, charities and non #CEP. This led to the creation of our first campaign & manifesto.

Em tempos de pandemia mundial pelo Covid19, faz-se necessário entender como são as fases da pesquisa clínica para aprovação e desenvolvimento de novos fármacos no mundo e porque esse processo é tão caro e rigoroso. #COVID19 #PesquisaClínica #MedicinaBaseadaemEvidência #CEP #CONEP Image
1) Para cada 10 mil novas moléculas descobertas pela indústria farmacêutica ou universidades, apenas 1 consegue chegar às farmácias e hospitais pois realmente comprova ser eficaz em todas as fases clínicas. O tempo mediano são de 10 anos e milhões a bilhões de dólares necessários
2) Falaremos inicialmente dos estudos pré-clínicos que ocorrem em laboratórios onde a hipótese (projeto científico) é testada “in vitro” -geralmente a medicação é usada contra células de ratos 🐭 sadias ou não-, para se comprovar atividade biológica daquela nova molécula criada. Image
