EPIC - Empowering People In Care

About Us

EPIC, Empowering People in Care, is the only independent, national organisation that works exclusively with, and for, children and young people in the care of the state.

EPIC aims to advance the rights and best interests of children and young people in the care system by advocating on their behalf, providing information and advice, developing opportunities for their participation in public engagement and youth work, and delivering policy and research to inform and improve law and practice.

All EPIC's work is grounded in the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child, specifically Article 12, which governs the child's right to be heard and to participate in decisions that affect them.
