The Children in Care Council Relaunch

18th May 2021

 

We have some exciting news....the Children in Care Council (CiCC) is up and running again!

The CiCC is here to represent children and young people who are looked after, and those who have left care between the ages of 7-25 years old.

Joining the CiCC gives you the chance to say what you think about being looked after in Sutton, and tell us what works and what could be done better. What you tell us will directly influence the support and services available for you and others.

We want our CiCC to be bigger and even better than before, so for 2021 we are relaunching with a new membership, benefits and activities, all designed by you. We can't do this without the most important people – you!

Membership benefits:

  • Make change happen, where you need it most
  • Have your voice heard and pave the way for others
  • We’re working on a membership card, with access to discounts
  • Meet new people and make friends
  • Access to free activities, outings and events
  • Drop in sessions, one to one and group support
  • Rewards and incentives for sharing your views
  • Help to access work and training including references for employers, colleges and universities.

We'll be running our first group sessions this month. Want to know more? If you would like to become a member or have a chat please contact Nicole on 07593130224 or email cicc@sutton.gov.uk.
