MORAY Council are preparing to celebrate care experienced young people, with events taking place next Friday.
Friday (February 17) is officially recognised as Care Day - a national day to celebrate and acknowledge care experience - and Moray Council, along with their Champions Board of care experienced young people have been working hard to create a programme of events to mark the day.
All three events are open to the public, with the day beginning at 10am with the Raising of the Care Day flag above Moray Council Head Quarters in Elgin.
The group will then have a peaceful march from the council building to the plainstones and back at 10.15am, followed by refreshments and connecting at the Harvest Centre on Greyfriars Street in Elgin.
Pamela Davidson, Promise Project Lead at Moray Council said: "Care day is really about celebrating care experienced people and helping people with lived experience of care to come together.
"Whether you're still in care or looked after or even if it was 20 years ago - Care Day is all about people coming together to really celebrate that and recognise care experience. It is just a really positive event for young people and the wider care experienced community to come together.
"All the events are open to the public and everyone is welcome to attend."
