Rights in Wales – children to have their say


As part of its inquiry into children’s rights in Wales the National Assembly for Wales’ wants children and young people to have their say.

The Children, Young People and Education Committee wants to hear from children and young people about:

  • How well children know their rights
  • If children think they have access to these rights
  • Which rights are most important to them.


To help the young people you work with to share their views on this matter the Assembly has designed a lesson plan and resources that youth workers, teachers and group leaders can deliver with up to 35 young people aged 11 to 18, within an hour. The Meeting in a Box resource pack is available for you to adapt to suit your group so that the session suits the learners. 

After running the sessions, the leader to will be asked to complete an online survey to share what was learnt and feed into the wider inquiry.

Young people can have their say until early October.
