City of York Council

Our vision for York’s children and young people in care is simple: we want our
children and young people to have everything that good parents want for their
children. In other words: to be happy and healthy, safe and protected, and
supported each step of the way to adult life.

A few words from Jon Stonehouse, Corporate Director of Children, Education and Communities

“Aspire To More is a brilliant project that helps to develop deeper understanding of being in care told by those who have real experience. What is even more impressive is that the project has been developed by young people themselves and demonstrates their commitment, skill and expertise. Aspire To More should be read by everyone working with children and young people. I would like to thank and congratulate everyone involved.”
