The pledge consists of five promises made to young people in the care of Thurrock Council. These cover health, education, reaching your potential, positive relationships and leaving care.
These pledges have been written by you, the young people, and have been agreed by Thurrock Council represented by corporate parents including councillors, directors, service managers and team managers, and will be adopted throughout the council for children who are in care of the local authority.
Thurrock Council promises to give children in care a voice that can be heard throughout the Council. This pledge has been agreed for each one of you!
The pledge applies to all children looked after by Thurrock Council from birth to 18 years of age. Some of our pledge also applies to those who are leaving care from the age of 18 up until 21 years and 25 years in some cases.
The pledge applies to you regardless of your sex, race, sexual orientation, disability, age, ability or background. This is also applicable to you wherever you are placed, whether this is in Thurrock or out of the Borough.
Thurrock Council has made these promises and a commitment to you.
