The Children’s Society – Making change for care leavers – using Engaging Networks to target councils
Andy Soar, Campaigns Officer, The Children’s Society

The Children’s Society’s campaign is aiming to stop young people leaving the care system having to pay council tax. So far, they have managed to get nearly 60 councils to implement this policy. In this presentation Andy and Jacq will explain how Engaging Networks has helped them target different councils with local statistics on the number of care leavers in each ward. They also had to alter the messaging going to certain councils depending on their initial response, which has proved successful as well.
