In line with The Promise, as a local authority, we have been working hard to consider the impact of our language on the Care Experienced Community.
Through consultation with young people and staff across Renfrewshire, we have created a Renfrewshire Language Policy that provides clear guidelines for acceptable, non-stigmatising language use. This will require us to modify our language both verbally and in terms of our policies and procedures to ensure we understand the power that our words can have.
If you have any questions or feedback about the Renfrewshire Language Policy, please get in touch with email@example.com
