On the 4 November 2017 young people from across the Northwest came together to hold a conference in Blackpool. the event was hosted by JustUZ

The conference is an annual event where young people in care or care leavers are able to come together and discuss issues that affect them and with the aim to improve services for young people in care and leaving care. We were delighted that Gavin Redhead, Children & Young People’s Participation Officer from Blackburn with Darwen Borough Council, was able to share the leapfrog tools, hand out the Inspirer Newspaper, and give examples of how the tools have helped in supporting their Council engagement activity.
