You should get the chance to have your say at meetings to plan what you learn and the support you need. If you’re nervous about going to meetings you can take someone with you to help you get your views across.
- You know yourself better than anyone else does
- Before you go into a meeting think about what’s important to you
- Adults must listen to what you think is right for you
- Getting involved can make you feel more in control of your life
- There are people who can help you have a say. They are called advocates. Ask your school to help you find one.
