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.

ABOUT US

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”
