Join CICC



 

Build Our Futures,the Children in Care Council is a way that children and young people who are looked after by Wakefield Council can have a say about things that really matter and affect their lives.

We run monthly meetings where young people can discuss things they want to change and improve to the care system with the managers and Councillors that make the decisions.

We run fun activities and events that give you and all looked after children and young people a chance to say what is good about living in care and what we can all do to make it better. We also have reward activities/trips to help develop your skills and to say thank you for your team work.
