Young Person’s Participation Group (YPPG)

YPPG is held on Tuesday evenings from 5pm to 7pm in the Carolina House Trust Resource Room in the run up to each Champions Board. We host a growing membership of 12 to 18 year olds who are currently living in a variety of care placement settings.

Along with a Staff Support Group, the young people:

  • learn practical skills
  • build relationships
  • celebrate achievements
  • review their group action plan
  • manage the group’s budget
  • prepare and eat dinner together
  • are working towards Dynamic Youth Awards
  • enjoy activities during school holidays and attend CB related network and regional events.

Young people interested in attending should contact Natalie in the first instance.

Impact

  • Young people from this group have met with the Minister for Early Years and Childhood at a National Care Day Event. They have also participated in the recent National Care Review.
  • Young people have been actively involved in recruitment of new Supervising Social Workers for Dundee and ensured that there was a focus on compassionate care – both asks from Champions Boards.
  • Young people also identified the inequalities of Birthday and Christmas payments/budgets between residential and foster care within Dundee City Council. This has now been levelled to reflect equal payments regardless of placement type.
