The Care Leavers Forum is a group of young people who have all experienced being in care. The aim of the group is to improve the services care leavers receive from Sandwell Children’s Trust. They help make the difficult transition from care to independence a better experience for all young people. The group meets every two weeks on a Wednesday.
Members of the Care Leavers Forum take part in staff interviews, induction training events, training for foster carers, attend meetings with social work managers and work with us to improve our services. They have helped shape the Local offer for care leavers which outlines services to young people.
