The Pledge

The Pledge is a set of promises made by Stoke-on-Trent City Council to all children in care and care leavers. Everyone who works or lives with children in care and care leavers' has a duty to make sure that you are safe, healthy, and happy. The Pledge tells you all the promises we have made to make sure this happens.  


​The promises are made around the 5 key outcomes from 'Every Child Matters' these are;

  1. Be healthy

  2. Stay safe

  3. Make a positive contribution

  4. Enjoy and Achieve

  5. Achieve economic well being


The Pledge was written by OutLoud Children in Care Council and Tune In Care Leavers' Groups and they would like to hear views about the Pledge and whether you think the promises are being kept. You can get in touch with them using the details at the back of the booklet or by using the details on the Contact Us page of this website.


Although the pledge is available online in an e-booklet here (you can download a PDF copy if you have a printer: PLEDGE_BRO.pdf ) if you would like an actual copy then feel free to email us and we'll send you a copy.
