A National Voice

Coram Voice welcomes A National Voice

About A National Voice

Young people in care are the experts in their own lives; they know more about the care system than anyone. We want to make sure they are listened to. So we are recruiting volunteers from around the country, who are in, or leaving care, to be Ambassadors for A National Voice. They will work together on project that will challenge the stereotypes about young people in care and get their voices heard around the country.

How can young people get involved?

Ambassadors will help to raise awareness and make life in care better for everyone. The team will meet once a month to work on a project that tackles a particular problem around being in care. The Ambassadors choose what they want to say and how they want to say it. We will provide training and support to take the project where the Ambassadors want it to go.

There will be meetings once a month in London and we will pay for travel and lunch on the day.  Meetings will be on a Saturday so that the Ambassadors can fit it around school or college. 

If you have any questions then please contact Ellie Mindel, Programme Manager for A National Voice on 0207 239 7510 or email ellie.mindel@coramvoice.org.uk
