Social services Making sure you are listened to

When you come into care, it can feel as if lots of people who hardly know you are choosing where you live, who you see, what you do at school and lots of other things.

But remember two things:

  1. They must make sure that they find out what you think and feel about the choices they make.
  2. They must make those choices in your best interest - they must really believe they're doing what's best for you.

If you feel that nobody's listening to you, the Coram Voice can help.
