Champions for Change
Champions boards are a vehicle for young people, Corporate Parents, and other professionals to come together with a shared goal. The aim is to ensure that services are tailored and responsive to the needs of young people with care experience.
Champions Boards provide a powerful space for young people, elected members and key decision makers to come together, focussing on what works and what needs attention in their local area. Champions Boards build the capacity of young people to influence change, empower them by showing confidence in their abilities and potential, and give them the platform to flourish and grow.
The Champions Board approach is characterised by genuine relationships being formed between young people, staff, and Corporate Parents.
This shift in culture from consultation to participation, from 'doing to' to 'doing with' is key in a Champions Board approach.
