I’m a young proofreader and I help Keep it Plain!

I said I would like to get involved in a video animation. My support worker helped me take part in in creating an animated video version of our Five Rivers internet safety policy. The existing policy was really difficult and complicated to understand. I worked with our participation officer to help develop a plain English script which means our internet policy can be understood by foster carers and young people. I also helped to record the voice over!

What’s changed
We have a child-friendly internet safety policy and this has been shared with other young people and carers in the organisation and with the public on social media.
This was a ‘Make a Difference production’ by Five Rivers’ Participation Service
