Do I have a say in what happens?
Yes, you do!
It is important that you have a say at every stage, right from the start when the idea of having an Independent Visitor is first mentioned.
We will ask you what sort of person you think you would get on best with, also how often you would like to meet and the things you would like to do.
Then later, there will be an agreement made about how often you will meet, where and for how long, and the sort of things you might like to do together.
