The Participation Service gives young people in care and care leavers opportunities to have their voices heard to help make positive changes to the care system. We also run lots of projects, trips and activities to help you learn new skills, build your confidence and meet other care experienced children and young people and to have fun. A lot of these activities are based within the London Borough of Hounslow but if you don’t live here there are still ways to get your voice heard and take part in trips and activities. Some of the things that you can get involved in are:
The Children in Care Council
Once a month you can meet to discuss issues and work together with other young people, staff and senior managers to make improvements to the care system and the services young people in care and care leavers receive. Even if you don’t live in the London Borough of Hounslow there are still ways you can be involved.
The Care Leaver’s Forum
You can be part of a group which meets monthly to talk about issues specifically for care leavers and work together with the Leaving Care Team and managers to make improvements to the services care leavers receive.
