The Children in Care Council is a group of Looked after Children and Young People who help to shape the care system. They are involved with policy changes, delivering training, interviewing new members of staff and getting the voices of Children and Young People heard. The group is made up of young people aged 11 to 18 years old who meet at least once a month.

The Children in Care Council gives young people a sense of belonging, helps them to gain relevant skills, meet new people, a sense of accomplishment, opportunities to visit different areas of the country, go on residential trips, meet with councillors and have a better understanding of entitlements and the care system.
The Children in Care Council members are role models, share their views, make young people's voices heard and get involved in decision making. 

They are here to recruit and help train new staff to make a change to the care system
