Get Involved with the Rights & Participation Service and CiCC
Last Year the Rights & Participation Service ran a successful project for Children in Care that was funded by Gallery 37. This involved a range of arts based activities and long term projects, including the possibility of participants earning a Bronze Arts Award.
This year we are hoping to repeat this, which means that we should have lots of opportunities for Children and Young People to get involved throughout the year and into 2014.
Every year the RAP team host a fun consultation event, and this year is no exception. Since we have moved to a new home at the Lighthouse Children and Young Person’s Centre, the event will be taking place there, in a state of the art building with a gym, theatre and plenty of room for socialising.
This years G2K will be taking place on August 15th. You should receive more information in the coming weeks about this. Last years event was a total success, and only because of the Young People and their Carers that attend. We would love to share with you another successful G2K event in 2013.
CICC and Other groups/Activities
There is always something happening! We run a regular group for Children and Young People in Care called the Children in Care Council and are always looking for new members to join the fortnightly sessions.
We will be running programs throughout the summer, particularly with a focus on the Performing Arts. So if you have any singers, dancers or rappers please let us know and we will arrange for the appropriate information to be sent out to you.
For information on any of the above, or for general enquiries about the service please call:
