Children in Care Council

The Children in Care Council provides a safe space for children and young people in care and care leavers to be listened to and helped to achieve positive change. The Children in Care Council provides an opportunity for young people to work together to promote their views, values and opinions and is a way for them to be involved in the planning and decision making processes on matters that affect their life. 

The Children in Care Council members have been involved in making a difference to others in care.  They have been involved in planning the celebration events, they have been part of the Young Inspectors, they attend regional and national meetings, take part in professional meetings and interviewing new members of staff for the children in care team, children in need teams, fostering team and Barnardo’s. The Children in Care Council meets on the first Thursday of the month
