Our History

The Rees Foundation is a registered Charity (1154019) founded by Jan Rees OBE in October 2013.  

The idea for the Rees Foundation came about many years ago when Jan Rees OBE and Rupert Bertie started talking about their ambitions to set up a charity for care leavers. Following over two years of research, discussions and planning the Charity was launched and has continued to evolve and develop.

The Rees Foundation’s philosophy is a strengths-based model championing services to, with and for care leavers and care experienced people and communities. Our aspirations and ambitions are high to achieve the best possible outcomes for care leavers and care experienced people and communities.
