Cumbria Councils' logos Cumbria Children in Care Council and Care Leavers Forum

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 our best ot 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 voicies are heard, especially when it comes to decisions that affect their lives.

Your Care Leavers Forum (CLF) is a group of care-experienced yong people aged 16-25 years who represent those who are leaving care.  We know that this can be a difficult time and our aim is to make sure that care leavers have a voice as they move into independence.
