Planning children's services: a model of engagement

This document provides a model of engagement for developing children's services plans.

Pilot Report

Children and young people have a right to take part in and influence how adults plan and run services for them in the areas where they live and learn. Edinburgh Children's Partnership were successful in a bid to Scottish Government to develop and deliver an approach to their engagement with children and young people which is based on a model drawn from Scotland's National Action Plan for Human Rights. For the partners in Edinburgh, the pilot initiative was a way to develop a methodology for engagement that is jointly owned by children, young people and adult duty-bearers which might then be shared as a model of good practice with other Community Planning Partnership areas. This report describes the process and the full set of appendices details the outputs from a series of three events which will continue to inform planning in Edinburgh.
