This is a purely educational programme. Graduates on the Leadership Programme do not work for CARE and are neither asked nor permitted to lobby on behalf of CARE.

What our grads say

“My time with a Liberal Democrat MP in Westminster was an incredibly eye-opening and fulfilling experience, giving an inside view into the way the world of politics works...I quickly had to get to grips with parliamentary procedures, Bills, how a busy MP's office runs...The programme was formative in cementing my faith, my worldview, my politics and my plans for the future."
Former CARE Leadership Programme Graduate

Watch some interviews with some of our recent grads about their experiences on the CARE Leadership Programme.
