Meet our Young Advisors

Last Updated: September 21, 2017

At the Trust we are lucky to have a team of experts - our Young Advisors.

The role of the Young Advisor is something that’s pretty unique for the children and young people of Doncaster.  It was developed in the early days of the Trust being set up as a way for young people to have direct access to the Trust's senior leaders in a way that had never happened before.

It’s a way to ensure that young people are given the opportunity to truly understand and be at the heart of an organisation that was set up to improve their lives.

Doncaster Children’s Services Trust has this week launched a tongue-in-cheek campaign aimed at recruiting new Doncaster foster carers.

The Trust Fostering campaign will run across its Facebook page for the entirety of October, asking users if they miss stepping on Lego, need someone to tidy up after and want to help someone with their homework, among other things.

“She really listened to me, I really felt heard.”
