Diary Room

Our diary room is all about giving young people a 'diary page' to tell us about something you have done and want to share!

These are the real life experiences and thoughts of young people in care from Wakefield.

You can also share a suggestion, and idea or something that's important to you.  Tell us something you are proud of! Maybe share your GCSE results in the summer. Or perhaps you have got an award to show us? Just click on the name of the person to read their diary room entry.

Why a Children in Care Council?
Children in care councils (known as CICC's) are an important opportunity for children and young people in care & care leavers to have their say about the care system and discuss any issues. The government asked that all Local Authorities set up CICC's, they all run quite differently, but the central idea is that they are run by young people that have experienced life in care. By sharing their experiences they can help social workers, managers and other professionals deliver services and make sure the lives of looked after children improve. The CICC helps to challenge negative perceptions of looked after children and champion's children's rights. Read more about Wakefield CICC
