Get Involved: Show Me That I Matter

Listening to your views is very important to us and you can express your views on being in care by joining Show Me That I Matter!

What is Show Me That I Matter?

Show Me That I Matter is the name of York's Children in Care Council.

The Show Me That I Matter Panel is a monthly forum where young people (aged 14 – 19) who are in care discuss important issues with senior managers at the council with the aim of helping to shape and improve services.

Why have a Children in Care Council?

Every Local Authority should have a Children in Care Council.  In York we think what you say really matters and that's why Show Me That I Matter is really important.  We want to know what you think about being in care, and how you think we could make things better for you. You have the right to have your say about how you think Children's Services should be run and about how things could be changed for the better.
