Young Champions summer programme 2016
Midlothian Champions Group in conjunction with Who Cares Scotland provided a 6 week summer programme for the Young Champions of Midlothian.
26 October 2015 - Midlothian's Champions Group launch
A new initiative to give every care-experienced Midlothian child ‘a voice’ bounced into life with a special launch at Ryze trampoline park and Transgression skate park in Mayfield. Working with the independent advocacy agency Who Cares? Scotland, Midlothian’s Children’s Champions project will see an elected board of care-experienced children and young people help shape policies that affect them.
A child or young person who is care-experienced has been looked after by the local authority at some time in their lives, either while living with their parents, relatives, foster carers or in residential accommodation.
