Get involved

There are lots of groups​ in Northamptonshire that you can get involved with to make your voice heard.

Speaking up for your rights

Shooting Stars

The Shooting Stars group represents the needs of young people with additional needs in Northamptonshire.

Children in Care Council

The Children in Care Council offers young people in foster care, in a children’s home or who have recently left care the chance to have a say about things that really matter and affect their life.

Care leavers council

The Care Leavers Council is also a chance for you to have a say about things that really matter and affect your life when you’re at the point of leaving care. Whether you live with a foster carer, in a supported accommodation or you live on your own home, your ideas can make a big difference.
