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

Why Lucam Retreats

Because your feelings are valid, your choices matter, your voice should be heard…

We asked young people in care what they needed most when they left care, 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, thoughts and we listened some more, and we 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 yearlong programme – designed to support young people like you.

Bring About Change

Even though you’re busy in the business of being in business, making time to help others at the start of their journey by giving back, is also a gift to you.  The children in care across our community need as many friends as possible, helping to lift them up and realise their true potential.
By giving your time, money or simply spreading the word, we’ll be able to connect with others and make the voice of care experienced people heard throughout our community, helping to ‘make better for all’.
Little actions repeated relentlessly result in ‘BIG CHANGE’ never underestimate the importance of ’small’ multiplied by ‘often’.

4 Weekly Retreats

Getting away and creating a space between you and your everyday, the overwhelming feelings, too many things fighting for your attention and not enough time or space in which to do them… We created 4 weekly retreats.

Each retreat week, you get the time and space to ‘think, create and explore’ exactly what it is, you’d like to do when you leave care. Our team encourage you along the way, they’re there to listen and engage, to help you plan, whilst supporting you to develop your Core Living Skills.

You’ll get to uncover your very own ‘Super Powers’ whilst developing self confidence, self belief, build resilience, learn effective communication skills whilst finding your own voice.
