The Participation Visa, like all the others, is driven by the 'My Visa Action Plan'.  Using the Signs of Safety principles of building on strengths the Action Plan should be revisited along the Visa journey as skills are acquired.

The Participation Visa offers a range of ways that young people can consider becoming involved in and influencing the services and things that affect and interest them.


The resources can be used as flexibly as you choose in order to meet the needs of individual young people. Resources related to the specific Topics can be found on each Topic page.  More general resources relating to participation can be found under the resource tab at the top of the page.

(You can only access these with a user name and password!)


There is freedom to choose the topics that meet the young person's need and each unit successfully completed and assessed can be accredited.
