Participation and involvement of children

Children and young people's right to participate in all matters affecting them is enshrined in Article 12 of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC). 

When given the opportunity to participate, young people are also given the opportunity to make change personally in their lives, in their communities and globally.

Play Wales has produced a Participation of children in planning and assessment information sheet to support Local Authorities in the participation of children and young people in planning and assessment.

To accompany the information sheet we have developed Sample Survey Questions and notes for facilitators and a Survey Monitoring Form for facilitators.
