This Report

This is a report on the delivery of the pilot which sought to adapt the SNAP model to support Edinburgh Children's Partnership to work with children and young people in a process that would engage them as partners in Children's Services Planning. The detailed appendices to the report also record what children, young people and adult duty-bearers recorded as they considered children and young people's lives and the services they receive - it is this detail that will continue to inform planning for children and young people alongside consideration of the model of engagement itself.

Planning and Delivery Partners

A small planning group consisted of representatives from City of Edinburgh Council (Schools and Lifelong Learning; Strategy and Insight Division) which included staff who support Young Edinburgh Action [10] , NHS Lothian, Edinburgh Voluntary Organisations Council [11] ( EVOC) and Children's Parliament [12] . This group met regularly to plan and review each session.

The group was joined at key points by representatives from the Children and Young People's Commissioner Scotland [13] and the programme funder Scottish Government (Children's Rights and Participation Team, Children and Families).
