Children in Care Council

Children in care council (CICC) logo

The Children in Care Council (CICC) give young people in care an opportunity to meet other young people with the similar backgrounds and experiences.

Young People will be able to voice their opinions, give their views and ideas to improve the services for them and influence decision makers.

It is a way of making sure that the people who make decisions about looked after children and care leavers know what the issues are for the children and young people themselves.
