“The more disabled young people take part the more it will lead to better services.”

“Participation should be about change and not just about skills and experiences.”

“People in charge need to understand what participation is.”

“It should not matter whether a young person can speak, they should be asked for their views.”

“If [you’re] not involved in decisions about your own life then this is wrong.”

“Instead of you working around services, services should work around you.”
