- Charity No. 1072322
- 01225 312 481
The group is for young people who are 11-18 years old (older depending on needs). The aim of the group is to help to make changes and a difference in looked-after children’s lives. The members speak to and work with decision makers, professionals and services and make sure they listen to young people.
There is no other group like this in BANES. SICC is independent from social care and health care. The group is run by Off the Record – an independent charity.
“We work together as a team and help adults to improve their participation skills.”
“It’s fun because you get to work with other people and to meet nice people.”
“It feels like a family in here. They don’t judge you.”
“It’s an overwhelming feeling of achievement when you see something changed for the better”.
“When I come here I get to say what I want to say, not what other people want me to say”
“I get to make a difference for other young people”
We would enjoy your views and opinions in the In Care Councils, to share and discuss your thoughts and those of others. The Councils are small groups and we are all in the same boat so don’t be shy come join in!
