CICC Juniors!


At one of our groups we made felt pictures of our favourite things!

 
CICC Juniors is a group specifically aimed at children in foster care aged between 4 - 11 years (primary school age). We meet between 6 - 8 times a year, during the school holidays, it is an opportunity to get together with other children with similar experiences and have fun.
 
The group meets with the Participation Worker and you have the opportunity to tell us about your experiences of fostering, we listen and value your views, particularly when we want to improve the services we run.
We also run themed activitiy sessions, such as Halloween, Easter, and outdoor Olympics.
 
If you want to attend a session in the school holidays, they are completely free, and fully staffed so all you need is a lift from your foster carer. To book a place call 01924 304195 or email your details to sHuntington@wakefield.gov.uk

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
