The Staffordshire Pledge
The Staffordshire Pledge has been developed by the children in care council as a set of promises to Staffordshire’s looked after children, young people and care leavers.
It reflects what is important to those young people to ensure that they develop into resilient, achieving and happy adults who can make a positive contribution to society.
Keeping you safe
We will do everything we can to keep you safe and protected from harm.
Your health and wellbeing
We will do everything we can to support you to be healthy, including access to emotional or therapeutic support where appropriate.
Your views, wishes and feelings
We will offer you the chance to share your views, wishes and feelings and we promise to listen to them and tell you how they have influenced the decisions we make.
Your education and learning
We will do everything we can to ensure you have the best education and training possible.
Where I live
We will do everything we can to make sure you have a home where you feel safe, happy and healthy.
Places to go and things to do
We will provide opportunities for you to take part in new experiences and activities you enjoy, whilst giving you the support to learn new talents and hobbies.
Becoming a care leaver
We will prepare you for independence where you feel, safe, happy, healthy.
Throughout everything we do
- We will treat every looked after child, young person or care leaver fairly.
- We will respect and treat you as an individual.
- We will do everything to support and inspire you to reach your full potential.
- We will support you to develop strong and meaningful relationships with your family, friends, carers and relevant others so you have the very best support available.
