We believe it is fundamentally important that children and young people are involved in decisions that affect them.
We have developed innovative ways to promote and encourage effective communication ensuring the wishes and feelings of children and young people of all ages and abilities can be heard. These include:
- Consultation events
- One to one discussions with Swiis staff and activities and play sessions with resource workers and therapists
- Activities and play sessions
Children and young people say that they are listened to and their views are sought. There is training and ongoing support available for foster carers on the importance of effective communication with children.
