The pledge

The Government says that every council should make a set of promises to all its children and young people in care. This is called a pledge.

Telford and Wrekin’s pledge

In Telford and Wrekin, we asked children and young people what they thought were the kind of promises that should be made to children and young people in care and we have based the pledge on what we were told. Our pledge is based on 8 points:

Your independent reviewing officer should ask you at review meetings whether you feel the council is keeping these promises to you. If not, you can contact the Rights and Representations Service on 07976 100588 and we will try and find out why this has happened and, most importantly, try to make sure things change for you.
