CHILDREN IN CARE COUNCIL
What is Walsall Children in Care Council?
Walsall Children in Care Council represents the views of all Walsall’s children and young people who have experience of the care system. A Children in Care Council (CICC) is a group of young people who meet regularly to discuss issues that matter to them. CICC provides a voice for children and young people in care and with care experience.
Walsall CICC hold regular CICC meetings with an appointed Chair and agenda, attend the Corporate Parenting Board to influence change, plan and organise events, come up with creative ideas to fundraise, attend forums and conferences locally and nationally and work with other organisations to ensure young people’s voices are heard to improve service delivery. They also work closely with neighbouring Children in Care Councils.
Other activities include developing new skills, interviewing professionals who will be working with young people in Walsall, creating surveys and questionnaires to children and young people with care experience and recruit new members for CICC.
Young people aged 12 to 18 with care experience are welcome to join the Children in Care Council.
