You can now see footage from the conference below.


We were very proud to play a huge part in the success of the recent CELCIS conference in Perth Concert Hall.  The conference was named ‘We are Family’ and the Kibble family certainly played their part. CELCIS Director Jennifer Davidson said

“I will look to this meaningful way of engaging young people’s voices as our new CELCIS ‘normal’–it was really well done and I’m very appreciative of the hard work and personal commitment that went into this from so many people. Thank you.”

Young people from Kibble’s open school and safe centre contributed by creating art work, which formed a really interesting gallery in the concert hall main foyer.

The Kibble band played for an hour during the lunch break and gathered quite an audience with their talented musicians. They even earned themselves a booking for a care leavers celebration day in Edinburgh on the 1st of November.

KTV filmed the event and one of our budding actors teamed up with Who Cares? Scotland to perform a comedy play which highlighted areas for change within residential care.  The play was well received with an audience of over 250 professionals laughing hard, but then reflecting on the serious issues beneath the humour.

We also made treats in home economics, which were packaged and labelled in the arts and crafts class.  These were certainly appreciated by the conference delegates, as we returned to Kibble with an empty box!

A fantastic day for Kibble to be main players at such a prestigious event and we look forward to the next one.
