Young voices and choices – getting better at listening
Hosted by BBC Children in Need
Date: Thursday 20 February
Time: 9.30am to 10.30am
Room: M2 to M5
Supporting children and young people to use their voice and to participate is fundamental to better understanding their lives, how to support and represent them and how to make a real and lasting difference. All of this is central to Children in Need’s vision as a funder
We have a range of commitments to children and young people; at the heart of which is that they will have regular opportunities to be heard, they will be listened to and that their views and input will influence change and inform our decision making. But how to do it?
Join us at this event to explore how we’re listening and learning from children and young people, what they’re telling us and how much more we have to do. The session will draw on our work with the Children’s Advisory Panel of 8 -13 year olds, working with us as part of our A Million & Me programme in support of this age group’s mental health and well-being. We will also share the early developments of our Discovery Group in taking forward our Youth Work Impact Theme and the engagement and participation of 16 – 18 year olds in this.
