In 2016 the Regional Children in Care Council held their first youth led conference for professionals. The conference was organised and facilitated by young people with care experience from across the region, and was one of the first of their kind. It was attended by a wide range of professionals, senior leaders and organisations who heard first-hand accounts from young people about their experience and how they want to see the care system changed. This was followed by another successful conference in 2017; both were a huge success with outstanding evaluations.
2018 will see four workshops covering key issues chosen by young people who are in, or have been in the care system, as well as opening talks from some of our inspirational young people and a key note speaker. The event is being organised and led by the young people of the North East Regional Children in Care Council.
The cost of attending is £80, which includes free parking, lunch, materials and refreshments.
