Our offer to children in care

Suffolk Promise

Our promises make sure that we care for and help children and young people in Suffolk.


Brighter Futures and C2C

At Suffolk County Council we strive to provide the best and most effective services that we can to our children and young people. To do this, we recognise that listening and involving the people that use these services is a crucial step to making that happen.

C2C (for 13 to 25 year olds) and Brighter Futures (for 5 to 13 year olds) are our children in care councils, children and young people who are in care or leaving care who meet to discuss what works well and what could be better. We are a friendly group who meet every school holiday, do fun activities, make friends, eat delicious food and shape, and co-produce children’s services.

If you know or work with a young person who might be interested in becoming a member, please get in touch. Young people can also give their views about things they want the council to raise, even if they don’t want to attend themselves.

Our annual celebration of achievements Awards will takes place on the 28 October 2017. This event is open to all children in care in Suffolk aged between 5 and 16. It’s fun filled day of activities followed by a ceremony to celebrate the wonderful and diverse achievements of the participants. This year’s activities include, football, animation, dance, drama and circus skills.
