The Children in Care Council (CiCC) aims to improve the lives of children and young people in the care of Bedford Borough Council by campaigning on their behalf, creating projects and events and by working together with Bedford Borough Council and the Corporate Parenting Partnership Group.


Bedford Borough Council works with the Children in Care Council on the corporate parenting promises “Our Pledge” aiming to improve the lives of children and young people in care together. The Our Pledge poster can be downloaded here.

There are 3 different parts to CiCC  which together create a strong voice for children and young people in care;

  • CiCC – a group of 10 young people who will be meeting with the Director, Mayor, senior managers and the Corporate Parenting Partnerships once a term to raise the strategic voice of those in care
  • CiCC Youth Club takes place in school holidays giving children and young people in care the chance to try out the music studio, cook, do sports and generally have fun! At the same time consultations on health, education, websites and key events like the Achievement Awards take place making sure everyone has the chance to share their ideas.
  • CiCC Projects take place throughout the year focused on the CiCC aims for 2015 include  recruiting new foster carers, information and challenge on the pupil premium, the new CiCC Website, planning an education Takeover Day and creating a buddying scheme.
