We Need You

Are you in Care, or have been in Care in England in the past?

Are you passionate about empowering young people to effect change in services for looked after children?

If you’ve answered yes to all of the above, then you may be just what we need! A National Voice is looking for dedicated young Trustees to join our Board and help to steer the work we do to support young people in and leaving Care in England, and help them to make changes to the services which affect them.


First and foremost, a massive 'thank you' to the Children in Care Councils and Corporate Parents from Leicester City Council, Leicestershire County Council, Derby City Council, Derbyshire County Council, Nottinghamshire County Council, Northamptonshire County Council and Rutland County Council for taking part in our Amplify regional event held on 28th March 2012 in Leicester. The hard work and dedication from all young people proved to be a success with many wanting to continue this on a larger scale.


We are holding a special Amplify consultation event for the East Midlands region in Leicester on the 28th March.

Members from the Children In Care Councils (CICC’s) from all 9 Local Authorities will be speaking about their experiences of the care system and how Social Services can make improvements.
