Angus Council has launched two groups which aim to give Looked After children and care leavers a stronger voice in determining the way services are developed and run in Angus.
The Children and Young Person’s Consultation group will meet monthly and gives children and young people the opportunity to meet, share experiences and identify changes they consider would help Looked After children and care leavers. The group will also meet with the people who are best able to ensure that appropriate change happens.
The group will be facilitated by Who Cares? Scotland. In addition a support group of staff from various agencies will be established to support the young people to attend and to assist the Who Care’s worker in terms of running the group and liaising between the group and the Corporate Parenting Board.
