WMVS Children in Care Foundations aims to improve educational outcomes for care experienced children by working with our partners and commissioning training to ensure that the educational needs of looked after and previously looked after children are better understood across the region.
Is to extend the offer of art, sport and cultural opportunities available across the West Midlands region for care experienced Children and Young People. We want to open new opportunities to our children and raise their awareness of exciting, and sometimes daunting, activities they have not experienced before.
Is that every care-experienced young person can access activities, events and programmes in the Arts, Sport and culture, regardless of where they reside.
We put children at the heart of everything we do. Their voice creates the blueprint for all that we offer.
Our mission is to enable children in care and care leavers to pursue their wider curricular interests and ambitions. The foundation is committed to establishing a programme that actively promotes and supports the education of children that are, or who have been, in care to one the fourteen local authorities, ensuring that our programmes, events and activities are accessible to all our children and young people regardless of where they reside.
The WMVS CiC Foundation supports in excess of 11,000 care experienced children and young people, their Carers, Parents and families and links closely with a significant number of groups, agencies and professionals.
Our values underpin every decision and action we take and drive our work.
