Young people start to Samantha Taylor – IRO manager to begin with to share the pledges one young person had created. Young people commented on what they liked and so did Samantha & Nancy. Samantha really liked the young person’s idea and hopefully would like to develop this further. We went through all the pledges and what is good and better about them.
Nancy Blake our Corporate Parenting Manager came to speak to the young people about the New Belongings survey findings. Nancy showed a video link to the young people about the findings. Young people discussed the different findings and how truly they reflected with their own personal experiences. There were lots of conversations around different issues and topics.
Young people discussed how they felt care leavers week went. Young people discussed the positive and negatives and what we could change next time. Some really meaningful conversations with young people.
