The Children’s Involvement Team (CIT) work with any Sheffield Care Experienced children and young people up to 25 and were established to find out children’s views on the schemes and projects set up by the Sheffield Children’s Fund.
Their aim is to use fun, engaging and innovative techniques to communicate with children and allow them to give feedback on the service they were receiving. CIT has now harnessed this experience to provide a wide range of projects and work all centred around the voice of the child, with a particular focus on children and adults up to 25 years old who are involved in the care system.
The Children’s involvement Team have their “One Page Profiles” which anyone can access here. They can give you a picture of the child focussed work the team at Sheffkids do.
CIT provide advocacy for children and young people at Child Protection Conferences, as well as for all Sheffield children, young people and care leavers from 0-25yrs old. Please submit a form below for more information.
Create & Change Groups:
The C&C groups consist of Sheffield Care Leavers’ Union, Sheffield Children in Care Council and Little CICCs. These groups encompass all of Sheffield’s children and young people in care and care experienced people upto 25yrs old and gives them a chance to express their experiences and improve the care system through action and activities.
An independent visitor is an adult who meets with a child or young person who is in care, or who has recently left care, to do a fun activity together. This helps the young person to do what they enjoy and provides them with a positive adult role model. The consistent friendship helps the young person to build self-esteem, confidence and resilience. To enquire about an independent visitor, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
There are also training opportunities for organisations found here.
