Project Description

Rachael Hatfield

Age 19, Scotland

As a young person with additional support needs, my feeling that people ignored my views and ideas inspired me to take part in social action and I became involved with my local youth forum and campaigned for young people’s voices to be heard and valued.

I am now on the executive committee of the Highland Youth Parliament as well as sitting on a management committee for a charity, where I support the local authority to ensure policies are used in the right way for children and young people.
