What is a family group meeting?
A chance for your family to get together and for you to have a say in your life
Why have a family group meeting?
Get your family together to decide what to do about YOUR things that affect YOUR life.
How does a family group meeting work?
It will be a chance to express your feelings and wishes to the adults in your life – adults and workers. The meeting will be in 3 sections:
- Part 1: Workers and Family sharing information
- Part 2: Just Family (Private family time)
- Part 3: Family and Workers agreeing the Family Plan
Follow the plan. For eg. Contact with family, Respite, Schooling.
What if there’s no agreement?
The co-ordinators job is to help the family get over any obstacles, this might mean another meeting, or more information. If that doesn’t help then the workers involved will make the decisions they think is best to protect the child or Young Person.
Anyone you think should be involved in making decisions about you. The co-ordinator will help with this?
Where will it be?
You can choose, it could be a local hotel, leisure centre, village hall or other suitable venue.
*The meeting will be in the language of your choice.
