SSSC staff joined young people from Who Cares? Scotland on their residential weekend in April 2016 to deliver a workshop focusing on young people’s leadership and that of the people who inspire them.
The young people told their stories, both real and imagined, that could change the care of young people in Scotland for the better.
Their stories of leadership are shared in this short film where young people consider their role on the National Care Council of Who Cares? Scotland, talk about their strengths, who inspired them and how they can develop their leadership in the future.
The young people were enthusiastic, motivated and engaged with the challenge and generated lots of ideas they could work on to 2021.
Everyone involved was also able to apply for an open badge to recognise and reward their learning and development from the session.
