Your social worker and carer must make sure that they talk to you about your feelings and views about things that are important to you.
Decisions that people make about you must be the best for you. they have to make sure that your feelings and views are included when decisions are being made.
Telling people what you want
Your carers, your social worker and your independent reviewing officer will all want to know what you think and feel.
You can tell them by writing it down, drawing it, making a tape or video recording or asking someone you trust to talk for you.
Telling people what you think
People who are helping you and caring for you like to know what is going really well for you so they can do things even better. This is called a compliment.
Telling people who care for you that you are not happy about something is important too. When things are going wrong they want to try and sort it out. This is called a complaint.
You can get someone to help you when you make a complaint. This person is called an advocate.
Speak to your carer, family social worker or Debbie Laflin, the children's rights officer if you would like to make a compliment or a complaint.
