Children in Care Councils

Your Children in Care Council (CiCC) is a group of care-experienced young people between 11-18 years old.  Those aged 19-21 years can also take part in the CiCC as young leaders and mentors.  We try out best to represent all of Cumbria's children in care and therefore make a difference to the lives of others.  CiCC members are vital in making sure that children and young people's voices are heard, especially when it comes to decisions that affect their lives.
