I attended the council meeting at the Town Hall on 11th November 2013 as a representative of the Children in Care Council (CiCC).
Together with other young people from the CiCC we presented young people’s views to councillors about our expectations of corporate parents. We showed them a video we made that included stories, views, aspirations and achievements.
I was happy and proud to do the presentation the way we wanted to do it and to see the faces of all the councillors and how they were listening to us.
When you are young and in care you don’t think it is possible to talk to councillors.
This is an example that shows it is possible and young people can make a difference!
