The consultation on Swansea’s Children and Young People’s Rights Scheme is live (links and information below).
Have your say: Consultation on Swansea's draft Children and Young People's Rights Scheme 2021-24.
Children's Rights and how children and young people have their voices heard is very important to Swansea Council. We want to make sure children's rights and voice are at the centre of our work, considering them in everything we do. This is very important to us.
'Doing it the Rights Way' is a document that sets out a plan to help Swansea Council to do this.
It says that we can make sure children can access their rights by:
· Encouraging adults to listen to your ideas when decisions are being made that affect children.
· Making sure adults and children know about rights and how to make sure children can enjoy their rights.
· Making sure people can let us know what we are doing well, and where we can improve our services.
· Clearly showing people how putting children's rights at the centre of our work, improves things for children.
This survey tells you how we plan to work on Children's Rights in Swansea in the future, and is open to anyone who wishes to give us their views on it. This includes school staff.
We have split work into five areas, and we need you to tell us if you agree or disagree with the work we plan to do. If there is something we haven't thought of, please also let us know, your opinion is very important.
The survey is available in English, Welsh, Easy Read and Widgit symbol, and versions are available for children, young people and adults at:
