Hello! I'm Alicia. I am a musician, an activist for Care Experienced and LGBTQ+ individuals, and I love most types of tea. I grew up in Edinburgh and was in Looked After at Home and Kinship care for most of my childhood. I was not aware that I was Care Experienced until I was introduced to Who Cares? Scotland, where I met other people who had experienced my types of care too. Understanding and exploring your care identity is a really powerful thing; it has changed my life and given me a new family. I believe that we have a really important role as an organisation in supporting those who have been in care to uphold their rights and talk about their experiences to help shape a better future of care.
