Say hello to Susan

I love being a trustee because I have so much confidence in the ability of young people to be involved in shaping the society we all live in. When I was young (a long time ago) children and young people were to be seen and not heard, that didn’t mean we had nothing valuable to say, no one listened so how did they know?

All my 45 years as a nurse have been working with children and young people, this and having my own children, has taught me just how much they can contribute if they are involved setting the future to benefit us all.

Being a trustee of the CRU is my small way of working to ensure that children and young people are respected. Informing and explaining to them (and adults) about their rights is the way forward…you can’t use something you don’t know you have!
