The Children in Care Council (CICC)


We want to hear from you

Although we get to do all these amazing things, we still need to hear your views and ideas too, so that we can pass them onto the people who make the decisions to help us shape and develop the way we are all cared for. There are over 600 young people in care in East Sussex and everyone’s ideas are important – so please tell us what you think.

If you are in any sort of foster or residential care, you can get in touch with the CICC about anything in your life that you’d like to speak out about such as:

  • a problem you have with contact with your family
  • your education
  • your social worker
  • where you live
  • an idea you have to help other children in care.

The CICC can support you to talk about whatever issue you want, and can put you in touch with other people who can help. We would love to hear about anything you have to say.
