2018 Youth Roundtable findings

Last November, Children, Youth and Families (CYF) hosted a Youth Roundtable to hear directly from young people about their experiences of being in care and what they think would make a difference. The roundtable included young people currently in care or who have recently left care because they turned 18. It was facilitated by the Youth Coalition, CREATE and the Institute of Child Protection Studies. You can read about what the young people told us at 2018 Youth Roundtable – What we learnt.
