This is the report of the culture, engagement and voice theme group. The key questions and challenges to the system that the group suggests are:

  • The needs of children and young people should be reflected in services.
  • Children and young people’s engagement in their own care must be supported.
  • There must be leadership and accountability, nationally and locally, for children and young people’s participation.
  • Equality must work in the participation agenda.
  • There should be a review and detailed consideration of a full refresh of ‘You’re Welcome’.
  • Local authorities, education (PSHE), Young People’s Councils, Youth Parliaments and young people’s champions need to interface and work with health and wellbeing boards.
