INSIGHT is BCP’s Care Experienced Young People’s (CEYP) Forum. INSIGHT is open to all CEYP aged 17-25 and meets every other week at 333 (BCP’s care experienced Hub). INSIGHT creates a platform for care experienced young people to have a voice and create positive change to the lived experiences of all Children in Care and CEYP.
