What should I know?
According to the United Nations, as a young person you have a right to evolving capacities and development. This means that you should feel comfortable in the spaces where you get support. Spaces should feel friendly and welcoming to young people, rather than cold, formal, or intimidating.
What might help me?
- Feeling comfortable and confident in the space where you get support – are you asked what you think of the design or layout?
- Being able to express yourself and move around the space without fear (it should be safe for you to go to the toilet!)
