Children 6-15

When I first came into care I was scared but they made me feel safe at home and I felt part of their family. You might find it difficult to fit in but you will and people will understand if you don’t like it.

The Pledge

houseThis DVD is about the Bromley Pledge, which is a set of promises made by Bromley for children and young people in their care.

We would like to let children and young people in care know how we plan to care for them. Actively involving you in the decisions we make for you is really important to us, therefore the pledge was written with the help of the Living in Care Council (LinCC). LinCC (pronounced as Link) are a group of children and young people in care and care leavers, who are helping us to understand what is important to you. This film was made by children and young people like you so that you can understand the promises that we make to you.

The young film-makers said “We made this video for you because we think it is really important for you to know about the pledge and how it can help you. No matter where you are in life you should always know your rights and responsibilities.”

The pledge spells out how we promise to help you and what your rights are. A film about the pledge can be viewed below.

Please be aware that the Bromley Pledge was rewritten by the Living in Care Council in May 2015 and approved by your corporate parents. In the new pledge, there is no longer a promise for a bike as stated in the animation film.
