Young People's Zone
A National Voice
Do you have experience of being in care?
Are you aged 16-25?
Do you want to have your voice heard and make care better for everyone?
We want to hear from you!
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.
As an Ambassador for A National Voice, you will help to raise awareness and make life in care better for everyone. As part of a team, you will meet once a month to work on a project that tackles a particular problem around being in care. You choose what you want to say and how you want to say it. We will give you training and support you to take the project where you want it to go.
There will be meetings once a month in London and we will pay for your travel and lunch on the day. Meetings will be on a Saturday so that you 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 firstname.lastname@example.org
