As a champions board feel our achievements are:
“We have created a mini family for ourselves. We have created a community for ourselves where we feel safe and comfortable to talk about our views/opinions and past experiences”
“We have grown in confidence and this makes us feel safe to open up about our lives.”
“We have created a platform to successfully influence change within our local authority.”
We think East Renfrewshire Champions board is a forum attended by representatives from most of the corporate parents. As we have evidenced our corporate parents are taking us seriously. They are listening to us and responding to our “asks”. This can be seen through the big changes we have managed to make.
