Children in Care Council

No decision about me, without me!

"I have been going to Build Our Futures, Wakefield's Children in Care Council, for about a year now and I've found that BOF is a good place to bring forward any issues you have involving life in care." (TM 17) 

Build Our Futures is your voice for for all children in care in Wakefield.  We want young people who are in care and those leaving care to be actively involved in helping to decide what services they receive. We have a participation officers to support the Children in Care Council and to follow up your suggestions to improve life in care for you and other young people.

The Participation Officers
regularly visit young people with their social worker or support worker and will also ask young people and care leavers what they think about the service that they receive and how it can be improved. they will then work with young people to set up projects or look at different ways in which they can make sure that their voice is heard.

If you would like to know more or to be involved in activities to improve the service you can contact the participation officers
