Participation in Wrexham

Why are we doing this?: 

Participation means listening to children and young people and taking their views meaningfully into account. All children and young people should be supported to freely express their opinion; they should be both heard and listened to. Their views should be taken seriously when decisions or actions are taken that affect their lives directly or indirectly (as guaranteed by Article 12 of the UNCRC).

To make sure that we have an excellent standard of participation in Wrexham, we need a plan (strategy) of how we are going to achieve this.

At the moment we have 2 plans one made by Children's Social Care and one made by the Youth Service. We would like to come up with a new plan, one that will really work!!

 

What do we want to know?: 

Are you interested in helping us to make that plan? This is an exciting opportunity to be involved right from the start.

 Please support us by filling in this short survey. This survey is for under 25 year olds only.

If you like further information on how to be involved in this project about Participation in Wrexham or to be entered into the prize draw for a £30 voucher of your choice, Please leave your contact name and number or email at the end of the survey. 

 

What we found out: 

We only had 8 young people show an interest in this consultation.

We found out what name preferences young people wanted and what they might like in the Participation Vision.

What difference has it made?: 

We will use the results to inform the work of Wrexham’s next Participation Strategy

Consultation start date 13 May 2021
Consultation end date 31 May 2021
