Participation Service – Get Active and Get Your Voice Heard
The Participation service aims to give young people in care and care leavers the opportunity to have their voices heard and to have a meaningful impact on services that affect their lives. We do this through a number of forums such as the Children in Care Council (CiCC), Care Leavers forum and Futures Group.
We often hold consultation events for you to give your views on changes that may be happening in the borough that will affect you. We are also responsible for sending out the Annual survey and Newsletters keeping you up to date with everything that’s going on and how you can get involved.
We hold a drop-in every Wednesday where you can meet other young people and get involved in activities. We also run an Independence Group, where you can learn about budgeting, cooking skills and get information on benefits and entitlements and transitioning to an After Care Personal Adviser.
We have revised our Pledge for children and young people in care. Thank you to all of the children and young people in care who helped us monitor the old Pledge and put together the new Pledge 2017-2020.
If you would like to get involved in the CiCC, send Chloe, our Participation Officer, an email, give her a call or text or just pop in to see her anytime you are at or around The Spot.
