A Young Person's Guide to Being Looked After
The members of the Junior Children in Care Council and the Don’t Whisper Senior Children in Care Council, have put together a Guide for you. It contains information that we believe you will need to know. It is not meant to answer everything. We want you to know everyone is different and we all have different experiences.

You said that you wanted a Health Passport, so here it is. We are pleased to let you know we have published your Health Passport for 5 to 11 year olds and 12 to 18 year olds.
