Participation and Engagement team

What is the Participation and Engagement team?

The Participation and Engagement team aims to:

  • ensure children looked after and young people have a voice in decisions made about them
  • represent children and young people’s views locally, regionally and nationally
  • develop links for children looked after and young people to contribute towards the development of the Children and Young People’s Department
  • ensure that services for them are relevant to their needs
  • develop projects locally, regionally and nationally
  • ensure children looked after are consulted around service delivery, and are involved in the recruitment, selection and training of social care staff
  • support the Care Councils to effectively monitor service delivery in areas of social care that affect them
  • create opportunities for young people in care, leaving care and with additional needs to participate in positive activities, and promote their achievements
