What our young people say

The care councils have many benefits for professionals. The meetings are a great way to get the thoughts and opinions of young people.

Another benefit would be that who knows what young people need or want better than the young people? Attending our meetings shows young people that we have a say in the decisions that impact our lives. It shows that we think does matter.

As well as the above, you can promote your services. What you tell our young people, they can pass on to other young people. You can also inform people through the right side of care website. - CICC Member
