What is the Blueprint Forum?
The Blueprint Forum is a group for young people aged 14 - 22 who are or have been looked after in Rhondda Cynon Taf (RCT). The group is run by an organisation called Voices from Care.
What does the Group do?
You will be able to have an active say and a chance to talk about what it is like being in foster or residential care in Wales. You will also have the chance to help promote the rights of looked after children and care leavers in Rhondda Cynon Taf. The Blueprint Forum produces a newsletter for all Looked After Children.
How often does the group meet?
The group meets once a month in Rhondda Cynon Taf with an organised trip in the Summer and at Christmas – you can decide when you can attend. The more you attend the more you can get involved in!
Where does the group meet and can I get help with transport?
The group meetings are run in Pontypridd and are located near the train station – so they are easy to get to! Need help with transport? We can help you! All you need to do is let us know before you attend the meeting.
What other opportunIties will I get?
You will have the opportunity to feed into the Blueprint newsletter for Young People in RCT. “Written by young people for young people.”
You will also have the opportunity to be part of the organised Summer and Christmas trips!
You will also get the change to meet and work with young people from across Wales to gain creative experience, which aim to promote the voices of looked after young people
