Your opinion matters!
It is really important that adults speak to young people when they are making decisions that affect them and adults know that young people sometimes feel like they are not listened to and their views are not taken seriously – The Forth Valley RIC Team want you to help us change this!
Young people who live in Stirling, Clackmannanshire, Falkirk and West Lothian are being asked to participate in this short online survey about youth voice. We would like young people to tell us how adults should speak to them, and help us to create a Youth Voice agreements or rules for adults to agree to, because we know that it is really important that adults speak to young people when they are making decisions that affect them.
You can acces the survey as a Google form here and claim some Young Scot Reward Points when you do!
