There are many voluntary and statutory organisations which can provide help and support as you try to understand more about the decision-making processes that affect your life, and as you work to engage more with them. Seek their support to help you to:
- Access information useful to your issue, including relevant legislation and policy;
- Develop the message or messages you would like to get across;
- Develop skills for engaging effectively with decision makers, whether they are service providers, councils, or government departments.
