Past Projects & Events 

Over the past few years we have been involved in lots of pieces of work that have come from suggestions by Looked After Children and Young People. Below are some examples of our work. For more information please contact Rob: robert.johnshon@investinginchildren.net

Apprenticeships

Young People said that the Council need to be offering more traineeships and apprenticeships to Looked After Young People.

Durham County Council have been working extremely hard over the past few months to ensure that this happens.

​Several different departments in the council have agreed to take on an apprenticeship. Check out the council website to see what apprenticeships are available.

Agenda Days

Over the years the CICC have ran Agenda Days for looked after children and care leavers who do not want to attend the CiCC meetings. An agenda  day is an adult free event run by young people for children and young people. The events provide young people with a platform to share their views and talk freely about particular topics. 

 

For more information OR if you would like to attend these meetings please email Robert Johnson: robert.johnson@investinginchildren.net 

Children's Commissioners

We took part in a review about the Children's Commissioner and the advice and assistance her and her team provide to children and young people who live away from home or who receive social services. The review was run by Indigo who are part of the University of Cumbria.

 

"During the review we got asked if we knew who the Children's Commissioner was and what she does. We also got the chance to suggest what we thought she could be doing to raise her profile and work more closely with ourselves and other CICC''s".
