We have Social Workers, reviewing officers, Managers and Directors asking for us to give our views all of the time to make sure that children and young peoples voices are captured so changes that are made to the service consider everyones view.
We have representatives from MADE Junior and MADE Senior who attend the Corporate Parenting Board to give their views and feedback about what the group are discussing and what they suggest to change for the future. Take a look at the presentation gave from MADE at the July Corporate Parenting Board meeting……
OTHER STUFF WE HAVE BEEN INVOLVED IN……
The last big IMPACT meeting we attended called the Corporate parenting board meeting, we took a presentation with us called ‘We Said, you did’ to show them how we feel they have responded to what we have told them…our reality… Have a little look at what we presented last week on 28th November (click on the link below to view)
We feel like we have been listened to by the board this year and know they value what we think. We need more young people to share their views for this very reason. People will not know how you feel unless you tell them. if you get a survey to fill in for Children’s social care/ social services, fill it in and have your say! Or come along to one of our meetings (check our calendar
This is when we met with the other groups across the North West to make sure we have a bigger and better voice
12th November in Our Place in Huyton
Take a look at the flipchart feedback link below from when we met with other Children in Care councils. We had a great time meeting up with other young people in care from different places in the North west like Oldham, Bolton, Trafford, Lancashire etc.
“We want to help young people to get across the stuff that they know isn’t working well about care and to make sure people in social services know what’s going right. We feel that meeting with the groups in other places, it will make sure to get our voices heard and we will help people to change their ways. This means care will be better for everyone because of what we say, and what we think will make the difference.”
