As a rights based organisation most of what we do is facilitated by working in partnership with children’s services providers.

Durham Children in Care Council (CiCC)

We are group for children and young people who are looked after in County Durham.

We meet every month to talk about life in care and raise any issues we have and the improvements we want to make to Durham County Council. CiCC is also an opportunity for children and young people to come together and say what works and share positive stories of the support we have received.

Type 1 Kidz (T1KZ)

Since 2001 we have been working to improve the lives of children and young people with Type 1 Diabetes throughout the North East and North Cumbria. We are a support group for children and young people with Type 1 Diabetes. Our programme is designed and delivered by young people and over time has transformed services available for those that live with the condition.

We have given presentations at national conferences, met MPs, run peer mentoring courses, and also gained national recognition and several awards for the work we do.
