We understand that right now, you might be scared, confused and worried.

We're here to tell you that it's going to be OK.

We're a group of young people that have been, or are currently going through, the child protection process or are a child in need. 

We have all been in your shoes and felt the way you're feeling right now. 

This pack has been put together by us to help you. You'll find pages with useful info to help you. 

We know child protection processes can be confusing with lots of different words that professionals use. We wanted to help you understand them. And shout out when you don't!

These pages are designed to answer some of the questions you have. They're there to be read when you're ready. 

Remember; you're not alone. There are lots of people who want to help you, so don't be afraid to ask.
