Synopsis

My Turn to Talk A Guide to Help Children and Young People in Care Aged 12 or Older, Have a Say About How They are Looked After by Claire Lanyon, Ruth Sinclair

Written specifically for young people, and with colour illustrations throughout, this guide offers practical tips for children on how they can have a say in how they are cared for, including their review meetings. The guide was written following extensive consultation with children and young people in care. The guide includes a description of the care planning process, advice on how children and young people can have more say in decisions about all aspects of their care, what to do if they are unhappy, and where to go for extra help. Practitioners who will find this resource useful include care workers, social workers, LAC team managers, care homes, Independent Review Officers and carers/parents.
