People who support me


Audience: health and care professionals

‘People who support me’ is an activity that will help children to identify people in their life who can support them, e.g. parents, guardians, family members, teachers etc.

The ‘people who support me’ should be adults who they trust and who listen to them.

This can be used as a tool for safeguarding or simply to open a conversation about the key people in a child’s life and how they can support the child’s health needs.
