Not being listened to? Feeling like your voice is not important? Well stop right there, your voice IS VERY important and we are here to listen!
We are involved in a range of things from peer mentoring, activity days, consultations, meetings with managers and interviews with newly qualified social workers, and managers.
The CICC is very well known within the council, we get asked on a regular basis to attend interviews or deliver training or attend meetings. We have a yearly awards evening which is organised by the CICC, this is where we all come together: foster carers, residential social workers and young people to celebrate their achievement’s this could be anything from learning their ABC’s to passing their exams, we do this because looked after children and care leavers are just the same as any other child and have a right to be acknowledged and achievements celebrated.
The participation officer in charge is fantastic she has helped us get where we are today and has been nothing but an excellent support without her we would not of got this far!!!!! The feeling of knowing we are making a difference to young people’s lives is just fantastic and we always ask for feedback so we can challenge or improve anything we are not happy with, there is sooo much more to tell you but we will be here all week however if this sounds great and you want to be a part of making a difference then speak to your social worker about joining… If you have any more questions feel free to send us an email, firstname.lastname@example.org
