Some background to the KICT group
KICT was set up in 2000-2001 to give young people in the care system a voice. The group has been involved in many different meetings and conferences ranging from sexual health meetings to speaking with the head of social services Lisa Christianson. We have also attended the education matters conference for the last 5 years and have held workshops and preformed a play.
KICT is now a social and support group as the in care council has arrived so the members of KICT applied for external funding which we received from youth bank so we can carry on running for at least another year. My experiences of the group have been great I have made some good friends and learned a lot of life skills that still help me to this day. Shayne
