You Said! We Did!
This is the space where you can see the difference your involvement has made and see the power and influence your words have!
|We want meetings in our communities where we live||We changed the CICC to come out to each of the eight districts in Devon|
|We want to be part of interviewing staff for jobs||We invited young people to run panels as part of the recent restructuring interviews|
|You asked to keep RIO||We will keep RIO and JAM and we will be starting a new group in the south|
|One of you asked to shadow Robina Khan||A programme of work has been set up to do this|
|Making the care leaver groups bi-weekly would not be good because you needed lots of support and it would be hard to know which week it was||We explained we will be starting a group in Barnstaple in September and in Totnes in January and that our resources need to be shared out, and that we would try to keep you better informed. We also said we would pass your feelings onto Robina Khan|
|You would like young people to be involved in recruiting foster carers||We will train a group of care leavers aged 20+ who have been in foster care to be a panel|
|MOMO is difficult to find on app store||We have asked the software developer. Their reply is that the way to get the app higher up the Google Play list is to write positive reviews of the app which you can do at https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.sixteen25.momo)|
|Are we any nearer with our text out service and does the number clearly show it’s from DCC||We have asked IT to investigate this and also asked a senior manager to get involved|
|No more posh sandwiches when we help out at events||We have passed this to the caterers|
|Please don’t send complaint acknowledgements by secure ‘egress’ email as we cant quickly see what they are and aren’t sure you have received our views.||The Customer Relations Team have changed their policy and will now send a separate email so you know that your complaint has been received safely|

This is more like a “You did, we said….” We say, “This is a fab picture drawn by a young person in care in Devon!”
