Rights tell us how we should be treated. For example, you have the right to be treated with respect and to be communicated with appropriately. You have the right to be treated fairly whatever your age, religion, place where you were born, whether you are gay or straight, male or female. You have the right to be supported with your health.
Discovery will support you to understand your rights, and to:
- be as independent as you can be
- have choice over who supports you
- have an education
- have meaningful relationships.
Everyone has the right to these things, and the right to be happy. You have a responsibility to respect other people’s rights, and we have a responsibility to help you achieve these things.
