Voices from Care was set up 1990 to help young people who are or have been looked after in Wales to have their voices heard and to support young people to ensure they are given their rights. Their aim is to create opportunities for all young people who are or have been looked after in Wales, making sure that they can have a say on the issues that really matter to them. Their aim is also to provide opportunities to improve the conditions of being in care, promoting the view of young people and protecting the interests of young people in care.
VFC is run by people who are, or have been looked after.
