Hi my name is Jess, I am a Care Experienced young person and an young person Ambassador. Ambassadors are inspiring advocates, being a voice for care experienced young people who support and share our experiences, views and opinions to shape the support we receive.

Telford’s Local Offer is a guide produced to give you, as a care experienced young person, an idea of what support and services you can expect from Telford and Wrekin Council. It is designed to cut the confusion and give you a clearer understanding of exactly what help you should be getting and what else can assist you on your transition to independence. It’s also a list of pledges and offers that help improve your life and hopefully make your move into adulthood less scary and more fulfilling. It provides advice around things like keeping you safe, finding suitable accommodation, helping you in to work, education or training. The aim is to help you grow, learn, aspire and achieve and to make sure you are supported into adult life.

I would like to personally invite you to the The Leavers Lounge, at Meeting Point House. It’s a friendly, informal place to come and receive support, participate in lots of different activities and meet other care experienced young people like myself. Come join our Leavers Come First Forum, see your PA, and use our sensory room to chill out with a cuppa.

After moving on from The Voice, which is a forum for children in care, The Leavers Come First Forum is for care experienced young people over the age of 16 up 21/25. We talk about our shared experiences, socialise and participate in some great activities. We want your support to ensure the voice of care experienced young people is heard and is leading the way in shaping services that support us.

Please arrange to visit to the Leavers Lounge through your PA. There is a warm welcome awaiting you!
