Have your say about your care

What you think is really important as it should inform almost every decision we make about your care.

You have the opportunity to express your wishes, feelings, report any concerns, worries, anything you're pleased about, aspirations and more through statutory meetings as well as voluntary options.

Statutory meetings

  • Social work/personal advisor visits
  • Looked after child reviews - this happens at least every 6 months and offers a structured way to discuss every aspect of your care.
  • Independent reviewing officer  - as part of your review you'll have a chance to speak to someone outside of Children's Social Care about your situation.
  • Personal Education Plan meeting - this happens during every school term and gives you a chance to talk about school and your aspirations.
  • Foster carer reviews - as part of this you can provide feedback on the care you're receiving.

Voluntary options

  • The Children's Society - independent support for young people in care aged 7-19. They provide advocates to make sure your voice is heard by your council.
  • Listen Up Group - run jointly with the Children’s Society and meets every month to discuss working to make young people's lives in care better. Talk to your social worker or ring the Children's Society on 01706 345600 for further information.
  • Young Persons Reference Group - for care leavers aged 18+ to provide feedback on the support they received during and after leaving care, offering an opportunity to improve the service for others. If you're interested talk to your personal advisor.
  • Futures Club - for care leavers aged 16+ to talk about your future aspirations and how to achieve them. If you're interested talk to your personal advisor.
  • Complaints and compliments - this is an opportunity to feedback directly to the council whether you're happy or unhappy with the service provided.
