Support For Decisions
We can get support to make decisions
We all have the right to make decisions about our life.
Sometimes we need support to make decisions.
We can choose what support looks like for us.
Who is a decision supporter?
A decision supporter is someone who assists with the decision making process.
They are usually someone we know and trust.
What parts of the decision can I get support for?
We might get support to:
- Let others know we have the right to make decisions
- Work out what the decision is
- Find supports we trust
- Find and understand information
- Think about what decisions we have made before and what happened
- Think about options
- Think about the good and bad things that could happen
My support network
Our support network is made up of all the people that help us to make decisions.
Everyone’s support network looks different.
Not everyone in your support network needs to be part of all your decisions.
You do not have to do what people in your support network tell you to do. Sometimes we need to hear what other people think.
It is still your decision to make.
Think about who helps you to make decisions.
Think about who you talk to when you make decisions.
These are people who might be in your support network.
