We are a group of children and young people in care, or who have experienced being in care, who work to make care better. We let Trafford know how important we are and we make sure that we are involved in improving the service delivered to children and young people in care.
We meet every three weeks on a Monday at Gorse Hill studios in Stretford.
Our members also get involved in other activities such as interviewing for new staff, being trained and training professionals and foster carers.
Our members have different reasons for being on the group:
“I come because I want to help to make changes in young peoples lives, to make them feel at home and happy in care like me.”
“To make a difference.”
“To try and improve the well being and safety of the young people in care in Trafford.”
“Keeps me out of trouble and stops me getting bored.”
