Voices 4 Choices (V4C)
V4C is the Looked After Children's Council in Lincolnshire. There are 4 groups across the county with events based around activities. The group involves some discussion and sharing views on services. V4C groups come together in half terms for Big Conversations with elected members and senior officers at the Council a to share ideas on what is important and things they'd like to see change to improve services for Looked After Children.
There are further opportunities for V4C members to be involved with staff training, recruitment and meet with other young people from around the UK. Of course, it's about what each member is comfortable doing so there is no pressure but groups are always wishing to welcome new members.
