Participation in society


Participation in Society.

We want our care leavers to be active members of society, and to have all the chances in life that other young adults have. We can help you participate in society in the following ways:

• Providing information on groups and clubs you may wish to join
• Informing you about relevant awards, schemes and competitions you can enter, in   line with your    talents and interests
 • Encouraging and helping you to enrol on the Electoral Register, so you can vote in elections
 • Informing you about voluntary work that we think you may be interested in
 • Informing and possibly helping with the cost of leisure activities
 • Giving you advice and helping you to challenge any discrimination you face as a care leaver.

Care Leavers Week

Every October we celebrate our Care Leavers with a week of fun activities and engagement opportunities. There will be opportunities to engage in local activities for example Bowling, Cinema, Go-karting and Snowboarding. We welcome suggestions from our care leavers for future activities.
We also use this time to promote Education, Employment and Training opportunities and have held successful events targeting engagement. We also undertake consultation throughout Care Leavers week and will seek your views towards our on-going service development.
Please ask your Personal Advisor or Social Worker for further details.
