Listening to the Children and Young People of Sandwell

Sandwell’s children and young people can have their say on issues that matter to them, and the Participation Team will listen to what they have to say, so that Sandwell Council can make things better for children and young people in the future.

The Participation Team runs various groups and events that children and young people can get involved with, which are run in partnership with different agencies and organisations, internal and external to the council:

  • Young People’s Safeguarding Group
  • SHAPE our Future
  • Looked After Young People’s Youth Club
  • Looked After Young People’s Board (11 to 18-year-olds)
  • Care Leavers Forum (18 to 24-year-olds)

The team also help us to get young people involved in interview panels, so children and young people can have a say about who works with children and young people within Sandwell Children’s Services.

If you want to find out more about what the team does, please phone 0121 569 5814 or 07805816215.

You can also email: – to talk about specific activities for children in care or care leavers – to talk about all participation activities for all of Sandwell’s children and young people
