Voice of the Young and Care Experienced – Listen to me

VOYCE-Whakarongo Mai stands for ‘Voice of the Young and Care Experienced – Listen to me’. They are an independent charity organisation that helps to advocate for the approximately 6000 children with care experience (children in foster or ‘whanau’/ family-based care) in New Zealand. 
 
VOYCE’s approach to child participation brings a very interesting point of view to the network. They actively work alongside Iwi and Māori organisations as well as other groups in the community, who build a support network around children and young people in care. They have also established a youth council of care experienced young people who promote the voice of care experience and related issues impacting young people.
