We are OVOS – Our Voice, Our Services.
All children and young people who are looked after by Solihull are part of the OVOS community.
We have monthly meet ups, talk about issues relating to being in care, plan regular events and activities and learn new skills by having a go.
OVOS trains and support young people to:
Chair your own reviews
Interview new staff
Take part in local and national forums (NLCBF, APPG)
Plan events and activities
OVOS encourages and supports children and young people to have their say. You have the right to have your say, to talk about what you think about being in care, how you feel about the services you receive, and how things could be changed and better for you.
Every Local Authority should have a Children in Care Council.
Solihull Council has a strong commitment to listening and involving children and young people in our care.
Our ‘Promise’ to children and young people is that:
“We listen We care”
A HANDY GUIDE
OVOS says "Thank You" to.....
Due to the national Covid-19 lockdown, our supported have not had the opportunity to fundraise or do activities to raise the OVOS profile.
We look forward to a time in the near future when our supporters are able to once again raise funds and provide gifts on behalf of Looked After Children and Care Experienced Young People.
