How you can get involved as a care leaver

We want you to be an active member of society and have all the chances in life that other young adults have.

We will:

  • provide you with information on groups and clubs that you might want to join
  • tell you about awards, schemes and competitions that you can enter in line with your talents and interests
  • help you to enrol on the Electoral Register so you can Register to vote
  • help you to get work experience through Teenagers to Work
  • help you to get work experience with our councillors
  • tell you about Volunteering work that we think you might be interested in
  • help you to apply for a Freedom Card from Durham's Children in Care Council which is a leisure and activity pass 
  • give you advice and help you to challenge any discrimination you face as a care leaver
