Children in our Care Council

The Let's Take Action (LTA) group is the Stockton-on-Tees Children in Care Council and gives children and young people the chance to shape and influence services and have a say on the things that matter to them.

The group is for children in care aged 14+ and meets every week on a Monday from 5:30pm to 7pm to discuss the support children in care receive.

The group is very active in trying to shape the services which are offered to children in care and their voice is so important as they have lived experience of being in care.  

Recently the group has worked on:

  • improving the transport offer for 16 and above
  • supporting foster carer training 
  • fundraising for local charities

Our Junior Let's Take Action group is for 11-14 year olds and meets every other Thursday 5:30pm to 7pm.
