Children and Young People’s National Participation Standards, 18/11/16 [W]

In readiness for Universal Children’s Day, celebrated on 20 November, members of the Participation Standards Task and Finish Group, on behalf of the All Wales Participation Workers Network, are happy to announce the launch of the refreshed 7 National Participation Standards.

The Participation Standards, developed originally by the Participation Unit, have been refreshed by a partnership between Youth Forum workers and Young Wales, informed by consultations with young people.

The Participation Standards identify the key issues that all workers should be aware of when working with children and young people in Wales. The working group that undertook the work, reviewed each of the seven standards and ensured that each one reflected the rights based ethos that is integral to working with children and young people.

You can find out more information and download the standards here.
