Your care plans


You should receive a good quality of care while you are looked after by Wakefield - here are some of the regulations (law) that says what good care is:
  • you live with foster carers or in a children's home which supports you
  • you don't keep moving from one place to another without good reason
  • your opinions are listened to in your reviews
  • the support you get when you leave care will help you find a job and a good place to live.
Children in Care Council wants to know if you think Wakefield is doing all these things for you.

Email participate@wakefield.gov.uk your views on these regulations.

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
