You will have access to Kent’s participation service where you can get involved in making changes to the care system, going on trips and much more.
Kent County Council offers regular forums, drop-ins and various media platforms for young people to access information and to voice their views, wishes and feelings and share their experience.
We will promote volunteering opportunities for care leavers where they can give back to the community. Getting involved in group activities, forums and training will help to boost your self-esteem, develop new skills and help you build your CV.
Participation in Society
We offer the Duke of Edinburgh award to care leavers. We believe that the Duke of Edinburgh award would help young people to integrate in the community. The award is for young people between 14 to 24 and helps young people stand out from the crowd when they apply for college, university or jobs. If you do not know much about the award, here is a link to the DofE website.
