WELCOME TO IMO – write, speak, share

IMO is a voice for teenagers in care and for care leavers. It is somewhere you can share stories, experiences and achievements, get and give advice, and find loads of great free stuff!

We share blogs, vlogs, podcasts and more from teens in care, and we link Children in Care Councils in England together around common campaigns.

We also share opportunities for care leavers, like jobs and apprenticeships, and we give away loads of free stuff!

IMO was created by the Children’s Commissioner for England in collaboration with an advisory network of teens with care experience. If you would like to join this network and have a say in how IMO is run, get in touch!

Send us stuff!

Whether you’re in care, leaving care, or a care leaver, IMO is here to represent you and your views. We need you to share your stories, experiences and advice with us, to help other teenagers and to make sure decision-makers know what you want. If you want to have your voice heard, send us stuff!
