Voices From Care Cymru undertakes research into areas that affect care experienced children and young people. Our most recent piece of research was undertaken jointly with Become, our sister organisation in England. This looked at the stigma children and young people face because of their care experience. The report is called ‘Perceptions of Care’. VFCC is currently researching the experiences of children and young people who are LGBT+ and are also care experienced. This is the first time that research of this kind has been undertaken.
CASCADE Voices is a collaboration between Voices From Care Cymru and CASCADE, Cardiff University. A group of care-experienced young people, from Voices From Care Cymru, advise on research projects from design to dissemination. The group do not undertake the research themselves but have advised researchers from universities in Wales and Northern Ireland and the third sector, on health and social care topics.
