Council Services:


V4C is Lincolnshire’s Council for Looked after Children aged between 8-17 yrs. V4C aims to bring looked after children and young people in Lincolnshire together for social activities and to have a greater say in services.

You, as a V4C member, will be able to have a say in how your local group runs and the kind of activities you’d like to do.

There are 4 V4C groups in the county for 2017 who meet approximately every 6 weeks. The groups are run by Senior Youth and Community Development Workers.
