For almost 30 years, the voice of children and young people has been at the core of VOYPIC.
It’s not just what we do, it’s who we are- the Voice of Young People in Care.
Today, we’re inviting you to join us, at the heart of the organisation, to say:
My Place, My Voice, MyVOYPIC
What is MyVOYPIC?
MyVOYPIC is our new scheme, specially designed to connect young people with lived experience of care across Northern Ireland.
MyVOYPIC members get special perks, like being the first to hear about VOYPIC activities and opportunities, access to local and regional meet-ups, and involvement in campaigning and action days across the region.
You also get a gift for joining and you will receive a birthday card each year when we release our Birthday Bank in October.
Over time, MyVOYPIC will grow, becoming a place for young people in care, the wider care experienced community and those who support others with care experience to connect and interact.
For now, only the Core Level is open to join- that’s for anyone in or from Northern Ireland, up to 25 years old, with lived experience of care.
And, you will be part of the team that decides the future development of MyVOYPIC, growing it into a special place for the care experienced community in Northern Ireland
