AMPLIFY: The Report

AMPLIFY: The Report

The amplify event was the largest ever gathering of care-experienced Young People. The event took place at Leicester University Halls of residence during a weekend in August 2002. A National Voice, the only national in-care organisation planned and delivered the event, and wrote the subsequent report.

Over 150 young people from Care between age 13-21 attended from all over England. More than 50 Local Authorities sponsored their young people to attend amplify.

Big thanks to all those Local Authorities who supported this event.

The weekend was a mixture of workshops and consultations.

Workshops included dance, media, DJing, wheelchair basketball, drumming and more.

There were two consultations carried out. The first was an interactive computer consultation with about 20 questions. The second was a more in depth consultation with topics including: overnight stays, advocacy, complaints, aftercare, reviews, pathway plans and more. All consultation questions were written by young care experienced people from A National Voice.

The amplify report was launched at the House of Commons in March 2003,The Health Minister and all Directors of Social Services received a copy as did all young people who came.
