Children In Care Council

Shaping the future of care in Bury

Our time in care

Here you will find poems, stories and artwork from some of our children and young people in care in Bury.

Members of the Children in Care Council and other young people looked after by Bury were asked if they would like to create a poem, story or piece of art work about their time in care.

Every young person's time and experiences of being in care are different, some being positive and some being negative.

If you would like to share a poem, story or piece of art work with us about your time in care to be shown on the website send them to us.
