Young people aged between 13 and 25 with a disability can have fun and get their voices heard by joining the D.R.A.G.O.N.s (Disability Real Action Group of Norfolk).
The D.R.A.G.O.N.s is a group of disabled young people in Norfolk, who get together and look at how disabled-friendly different venues and services are and give suggestions about how they can be made more accessible.
They believe every young person should be listened to and have a chance to have their views heard. Joining the group provides lots of opportunities including public speaking, helping to set up services, training and interviewing.
It can help young people become more confident, feel more comfortable expressing their views and show them how their voice can change things for the better.
It also teaches young people the importance of disabled young people’s voices and helps them see that disabled young people should be welcome everywhere and understand that they are as important and valuable as everyone else.
It’s also a lot of fun and there is sometimes cake!
