It’s tricky to say whether you have to go to contact when you might feel like you don’t want to. If you are unsure the best thing to do would be to ask the people you live with, any professionals working with you or the centre and they will help you to understand the situation and what your rights are.

You might also want to talk to Childline if you feel like you are being made to do something that you do not want to do, or that is not safe. Childline would happily provide the support you need. You do not even need to talk if you don’t want too, they have instant chat and email services too.

The LawStuff Website also has legal advice for children. You might find this helpful if you wanted to know more about your rights.
