Consultation Meetings with Looked After Young People "Show Me That I Matter"
The aim of Show Me that I Matter is to make things better for young people and children who are in care by listening to their views and taking action. In this way it is hoped that the service they receive will be improved and that young people, managers and City of York Councillors may all be involved together in working towards providing the best care possible.
The Show Me that I Matter group meets monthly as a forum for children and young people in care to discuss matters which are important to them. The meetings are attended by members of the City of York Council. A manager is invited to attend in order to discuss a specific issue as and when necessary. The attendance and involvement of Councillors is very important, particularly in enhancing the confidence of the young people involved and in ensuring that the issues raised receive serious attention. Show Me That I Matter is York’s Children in Care Council.
Two hours attendance at monthly meetings. Availability for related meetings or social events required occasionally. Meetings are held at West Offices, York.
