Project Details


This project aims to contribute to debate on the need for service reform, from the perspectives of vulnerable young people whose voices have been missing from this debate. It employs a participatory approach, engaging children and teens in re-envisioning the service system and in developing and trialling child-led service initiatives. It also explores organisational barriers to including young people in policy debate and service decision-making. Expected outcomes include increased knowledge of how to effectively engage young people, and understanding of the impact of their participation both for young people and for services. There is social benefit in acknowledging children and young people as important stakeholders in service reform.
