Who we are

The Children in Care Council is split into three sub groups. Members of all three groups have the chance to get together with other young people in care to have the opportunity to talk and discuss what you think about the support and care you receive and how we can make things better for you and other looked after children and young people in Oldham. You take part in fun activities and go to different events involving other young people from care.
