I am soon to meet the young person I will be going out on day trips with as part of the independent visitor scheme, which gives children respite from the care system.
As part of the intro process, they suggest a few of these ice-breaker questions.
It’s quite a fun exercise to do yourself – gives a real insight as to who you are as a person without going into things that may be emotionally charged. They prompt responses that abandon judgement on background, family life and other discriminatory factors.
What would you do if you won a million pounds?
Is there a country you would like to visit and why?
Name one achievement in your life that you are really proud of?
If you could make yourself invisible what would you do?
Is there one thing you have never wanted to do, why?
If you had a magic carpet that could take you anywhere, where would you go and why?
Of all the animals in the world, which is your favourite and why?
Name something that bores you rigid and why?
If you could invent or discover anything what would it be and why?
I will let you know my answers tomorrow.
