Takeover Day

Takeover Day is an annual event part of the national Takeover Challenge initiative held in November.

It is an opportunity for children in care and care leavers to get an insight into different job roles within Barnsley Council, raising ambitions and aspirations.

Last year’s Takeover Challenge saw a range of opportunities and roles being filled by the young people.

The opportunities included working alongside:

    • South Yorkshire Police
    • Wigfield Farm
    • Barnsley FC Academy
    • Barnsley Council
    • Cannon Hall Farm
    • NPS

If you’re a care leaver or looked after child and would like to get involved, contact us online, alternatively you can view Barnsley Council’s local offer to find out what support if available for care leavers.
