Moving On was a 2 year project funded by Esmee Fairbairn Foundation. Run by Women & Theatre, in partnership with Birmingham Children’s Trust and Birmingham City Council, Moving On was a creative project co-delivered with care experienced young people. The project set out to make changes, break stereotypes and prepare young people to leave care. We worked with a core group of care experienced young people to explore important issues concerning the care system and the care experience through creative and theatre-based work.

Moving On’s Future and Legacy 

Moving On officially came to an end in December 2022, but the friendships, discussions and pieces of creative work live on! 

Women & Theatre is committed to working with children in care and care experienced young people as a core part of their programme, and we will continue to do so.
