Council launches Easter and Eid appeal for city's care leavers

The City of Wolverhampton Council’s Reach Leaving Care Team are aiming to make it an egg-cellent Easter and exciting Eid for the city's care leavers this year.


And to do so, they are calling on residents and businesses to support their annual appeal to buy gifts which will be distributed to care leavers over Easter and during Eid.


They have developed an Amazon Wish List in conjunction with care leavers which includes a range of items like Easter Eggs, well-being gifts, and Eid-related presents for people to choose from.


To get involved is easy – people can simply visit and purchase the item or items they would like to donate. The Reach Leaving Care Team will then deliver them to the young people in time for Eid and Easter.


Alongside the online wish list, the Reach Leaving Care Team will also be hosting a physical collection point where people can donate any chocolate eggs or gifts they would like to share. It is available at The Oasis Hub, 73-75 Willenhall Road WV1 2HW, every Thursday from 1pm to 6pm until 27 March.


Councillor Chris Burden, Cabinet Member for Children and Young People, said: “The Reach Leaving Care Team support over 400 young people across the city and want to make sure each and every young person has a gift from the council, their Corporate Parent, this Easter and Eid.

“We know times are tough for people right now, but please make a donation if you possibly can.”
