I Still Matter

I Still Matter is the name of York Care Leavers Forum and it makes up part of York’s Children in Care Council. I Still Matter is for any care leaver up to the age of 25 and aims to offer practical solutions to a variety of issues that affect all care leavers. I Still Matter supports care leavers to express their views to help make the transition from care to independence a better experience. It’s your chance to tell us how services and support could be better!

I Still Matter has been involved in helping to create York’s Local Offer for care leavers. As part of this, I Still Matter shared their views about the free bus travel for children in care, and this is now available for all care leavers up to the age of 21. This shows the impact I Still Matter can have!

The meetings take place on the second Monday of every month. The meetings are from 5pm-7pm at West Offices.
