About Amplify 2023

On Wednesday 25 October 2023, we held our A National Voice ‘Amplify event’ in London to consult, network, and celebrate.

The event took place during National Care Leavers’ Week. 75 children and young people from 20 children in care councils and care leaver groups joined us at the Coram Campus. Our care-experienced ANV ambassadors helped facilitate the day that included:

  • Consultation on the Government’s plans for children’s social care, ‘Stable Homes, Built on Love’
  • A question and answer session with David Johnston, Minister for Children, Families and Wellbeing
  • The launch of ANV’s Grand Campaign

ANV also celebrated the amazing ways children and young people are transforming care in their local areas through the A National Voice Awards.

The A National Voice Awards champion and recognise children’s work in England’s care councils and care leaver forums. Nominations are for junior children in care councils, children in care councils and care leaver forums and any participation group within Children’s Social Care.
