Our Voice Listen Up


What is Our Voice Listen Up and what do they do?

Our Voice Listen Up is your Council for children in care. Young people in North East Lincolnshire aged 10 to 17 can attend the group to take part in discussions about issues and topics that are important to them. Group members meet regularly to take part in discussions, activities and eat together.

The group also meet with managers, attend regional meetings and events and also help with interviewing and training staff.

Our promise to the children in our care

The Corporate Parenting Promise and local offer for care leavers are our commitments to the children and young people we care for.

The promise set outs how we will provide children and young people with the best possible care, support and access to opportunities to their current and future needs. Along with the local offer for care leavers, the promise helps young people become independent and reach their full potential.

Our promise was developed through a series of workshops and consultations with looked after children and care leavers. The Promise details what young people in care want from North East Lincolnshire Council and the officers who work there.
